"Don't waste time thinking about what could've been."

People keep telling me to live in today,
Not in the haunting yesterday.
They don’t understand that I can't.
Every time I close my eyes,
I remember everything,
Especially all ‘their’ loving lies.
I try to stop, but I can’t.
Ruminating isn’t pleasant,
Not at all.
But I can’t seem to tear down
This memory filled encasement of a wall.
I’ve tried, but I can’t.
I can’t, but believe me,
I want.
I want to believe in tomorrow,
And throw away yesterday’s sorrow.
But my mind disagrees with me.
My mind
Fogs up my intentions; I can’t see.
I can’t see
My future ahead of me.
I’m still focusing on the pains
Of yesterday, when I would love
To be dreaming of the future,
And living in today.
But my life just isn’t working out that way…

The author's comments:
Please don't ever tell someone to "just get over it", because you might not know the whole picture, or just how hard it is to "get over it". Love and kindness can help to cure almost anything. That's what we all need.
