The Ghost of the Past

The emotions..
That I dare not express..
The tears that i shed internally..
The opportunities that i overlook daily..
The smiles as we pass..
The thoughts of you being mine..
The pain that flows throughout me as I watch you with another person..
The desire for you to be mine..
Or even.. the lust..
The one chance that i hope to possess..
if only just once..
The mind within your body that i long to change..
The hug that i will never accept..
The lips that I will never grace..
The past was never good to me..
But you are the present..
You are the future that I want..
The future that is haunted by the ghost of the past..
The same past..
That was never good to me..

Too many times in life.. WE pass up what may be our future.. OR even just a change for our present. Because the ghost of the past haunts us. The past is behind us as an obstacle that we have overcome. Not as a bag that we should carry with us forever.
