Haunted

If I could take it all back, all the wrong things I ever said, all at the wrong time, those unexpected moments where I bared my soul, I would. In those moments, I was vulnerable, hypnotized by your gaze as it locked with mine. At the time it was exhilarating, to feel you and how those deep eyes saw right through me. But now, I wish I could rewind and stop you from knocking down my defenses and shield myself from the pain of losing you. But I can’t. And I’m haunted by your memory. Haunted by all we were, all we could have been, and everything we lost.

    1. Thank you so much. I do tend to receive a lot of comments. I’ll check to see if there’s a way to have the comment box above the comment section. But it could be a theme issues that I might not be able to fix. Nonetheless, I am grateful you took the time to scroll to leave your thoughts. 😊

  1. This is so fitting, since I am finally getting used to the idea that he’s just not coming back, and moving on is becoming less scary. Especially after writing about it being scary, which was a nice release.

    Extremely well done, I am so impressed!

  2. I really like this one, because it could be about a significant other who died or it could be about breaking up with that one perfect person. It could be even be about ending a toxic relationship (if you read it all wrong 😆 ). Or I could just be reading too much into it. But I do love that last line. 🙂

      1. Dearest one, you are so welcome, I noticed WP has been doing that lately I don’t know why, though most are when there is an external link it happens even when it’s not sometimes. Grrr. Thank you for your continuing inspiration as a writer and poet.

      2. Thank you because you’re one of the crowned forest fairies of WP so that’s high praise indeed xo (but even if you were not, I’d still be smiling!)
