The Hallways Of My Mind - Poem by Katelyn Foley

Steps echo through the hallways of my mind,
Falling silent as they linger at your door.
A hesitation halts my hand;
Do I dare enter you again?
Do I have the strength to remember,
Can I subject my heart to such torture
My mind gives way to impulse
As my hand turns the knob...

My God, my God, what have I done?
Given myself up to you one more time,
Playing with my senses,
Manipulating my feelings,
Ravaging my heart again...

Mea culpa, mea culpa;
It was my fault;
I was the reason you left me.
It was I who shattered myself,
Broke myself,
Killed myself.
My fault, my fault, my...

Press on, press on, press on;
Don't let this get the best of you.
You are not at fault;
He left you after he broke you...

My fault, my fault...
Press on, press on...
...fault, my fault...
Press on.

The strain brings me to my knees
As I rest my head against the closed door.
Silence once more, once more.

Steps echo through the hallways of my mind,
Walking far from pains I now leave at your door.
