A shadow of the past

Follows everywhere you go

Something haunting

Something twisted, something dark

 

A shadow of the past

A feeling that you try to fight

Something twisted, something dark

It’s pleasant in an awful way

 

A feeling that you try to fight

Crumpled up and buried deep

It’s pleasant in an awful way

So you hide it

 

Crumpled up and buried deep

Just the embers, burning low

So you hide it

As if they can’t see the glow

 

Just the embers, burning low

Past wrongs and old hurts

As if they can’t see the glow

The anger in your eyes

 

Past wrongs and old hurts

Because it was so long ago

The anger in your eyes

It’s not really there

 

You forgot it long ago

Something haunting

Festering, hidden, secret

A shadow of the past


The author's comments:

This pantoum was inspired by grudges, in a way. Sometimes people hurt you, and even if you forgive it can be hard to forget. Some hurts just linger.
