The ghosts of our past are the most painful to see.

They bring back stray thoughts and memories.

They fill you with nostalgia, grief and longing

While unburying the feelings you’ve long been hiding.

They pick at the scabs life puts on your heart

Trying to make up for the lost time apart.

They’re not trying to be mean or vicious or cruel;

They want you to remember to be kind, not a fool.
