Whispers


Shadows from the past
Is what holds me back
I tried to leave it behind
Tried to neglect it
For it creeps me out
But I can't

The past I have shaped
Mistakes, misdeeds
I wish I could go back
To clean up the mess
To be at peace, to move forward
But I can't

I have heard its whispers
Slowly poisoning my head
Stop! I screamed
My heart is in pieces
Tried to bring it back together
But I can't

Conforten zona- where it left me devastated
Constrained, diseased
It now tries to kill my aspirations,
My tomorrow
I would have let it
But I won't

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
