Poem: Hiding in the Past

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Hiding In The Past" by New Shoes

He takes her hand in his
holding her close,
stares in those baby blue eyes
hoping for a miracle
to release the chains
trapping him in the past.

Part of him wants to hold her
for the rest of his days,
part of him wants to run
to stand alone,
for he fears the feeling
of being too close.

He remembers a bridge
burning from his past,
not wanting this pain to resurface
he hides safely
in his fantasy world.
