And just for thought...
It has been many nights since you haunted me,
coming to me in the late hours,
chasing me away from that which you stole
but your attempts haven't worked, not the way you wanted,
because I am still standing.
I never enjoyed seeing your face
but it didn't matter how fast I ran away from you.
You would always find a way into my sight.
I saw you last night
and I did what I always do,
running away from the mere mention of you,
crying out for some sort of salvation,
but your hold on me is still strong
because I still can't speak your name,
still can't speak your sin.
I always thought so highly of you
but you didn't care when you refused my pleas
and so your haunt began.
Perhaps you have no idea that your dirt hangs from my neck,
that your grip still remains on my wrists.
Maybe you think what you did was right.
but I know I still ring in your ears.
I would like to think my face haunts you just the same
and my screams linger around you like a noose.
Until your next haunting, I bid you farewell.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
