She lost herself in hallways

Of broken glass and blood stained dreams

She wandered through each doorway

Inspecting all the undone seams

Flecks of memory on the breeze

She wipes away the cobwebs

In the corners of her mind

She dances with old devils

And every skeleton she finds

Hearts don’t dwell here

Hearts don’t stay

Where loveless demons

Demand to play

The darkness it engulfs her

Swallows her deep down into the shit

Her flesh falls from her bones

And her bones clatter into the pit

And there they will forever sit.

But it was just a photograph

A picture from last year

That brought her to the depths of hell

And ensured she sowed but one last tear

And it was just a memory

Drifting idly by

On a chilly summer breeze

Just a silly memory

That sunk her to her knees

Side note:

A while back I stopped titling most of my writing and simply used the date as the title. I did this because when I go back and re-read my own stuff (whether it’s good or bad) simply seeing the date will throw me back into the feeling of that day. And I believe it’s important to dance with our shadows and embrace our pasts from time to time. Our experiences have made us who we are and will continue shaping us us for years to come. We must acknowledge those things that hurt us. Those things that made us smile. Let ourselves get lost – for just a moment – in those memories and be grateful for where we are today. It will never be perfect. We will never feel completely satisfied. But we were not meant to. That is the perplexity of life itself. Constantly searching, growing and learning.
