Ghosts of my past

The past is always
the past
I often forget it
but it remembers me
everything I failed to be
yesterday is history...

The past is a ghost
a hole, dust, the wind
it is dark and moves unseen
beneath, betwixt and between
angels, demons, elemental spirits
come to me when I am sleeping...

Ghosts from my past
makes my thoughts
heavy as branches
after a raging storm
leaving me tired and forlorn
people who came before me
appear in dreams

In a way
we are all ghosts...

    The window in our mind that dreams are filtered through allow not only the dark dreams but also let the sunny ones thru. I enjoyed the read.

    oh my goodness. a lot of pondering on all those ghosts. I would not want to think about them but you are right, sometimes they just come to us in our memories. This is really cool how you came to your final conclusion: in a way, we are all ghosts.

    The past is always behind us love the way you liken the past to ghosts there to haunt us if we will let it - a very deep write. hugs Jan xx
