Shadowed Past - A Poem


face it head-on
as you come back around
follow the connection
which will lead you to me

step out from the
shadowed past
and move towards
a promise of love
it’s one that I hold
in the hope that soon
it will bring us
together again

through past pains
change manifested
within the both of us
but it is our past
that threatens
to destroy any
new beginnings
we try to reach for

will you let
the past dictate our
future together
will you allow the past
to torment us this way
or will you trust
that our dreams can
become a reality

try to forget
old mistakes
we both made
just let them
fall away
and make room for
something deeper

let us have the
we both seek out
we can find it
within each other
believe me

Wonderful feelings of hope.

Leaving the past behind and accepting the future is now yours to share together.

Great write.
