a ghost.

i told myself i'd soon forget. that what they say is true. 
that time heals all wounds. that this would fade. 

as if it never happened. erased from my mind.

but, tell me why do i still feel it.
why does my mind still run wild with these memories?

i guess the other day i realized.
you never really forget.

the pain will dim and the thoughts will become few and far between. 
but they will still remain. they are apart of your being now. they are you. 

it'll stay with you forever. like a ghost.
making you who you are and who you are going to be.

but you’ll learn to live with it or try to.
i hope you try,

maybe, just maybe.
someday you’ll even learn to smile at the ghosts within.
