Get Out of My Head

You're in my head 
and I want you out
I can't focus in class 
with you here
I'm trying to learn 
what life is about
But my mind 
and my heart want you here
I clench my fists 
and close my eyes
And open 
to a piece of my past
Blinking rapidly 
until I focus again
I'm glad that day didn't last
But you, your pieces 
didn't stay long enough
I pushed that puzzle away
I was afraid of a challenge 
I'd never before seen
I wished I could start 
a new day
I got my wish 
and that's why I'm here
But why 
am I still being haunted?
The ghost 
of all the mistakes we made
Is sitting in this classroom, 
You're in my head 
and I want you out
I can't focus on life 
with you here
You have moved on 
so leave me alone
And alone 
I will conquer this fear

    Juli, thank you very much for the good night.. about your poem; I remember them school days when my heart would occupy every single thought in me. Never allowing me to concentrate. I like your ending thought, it is always a good thing to focus on what really is. And moving on for you is a good thought... Hope it all works out for you. always~ pd
