Ayla Diamond contemplates the nature of the past, and the ghosts we are all haunted by. She informs us we no longer have to be scared. We can break free from those shadows.
Today I met her,
She looked at me with that hauntingly
A gaze etched in confidence,
Knowing I was meant to hold onto her,
To embrace her in late night moments,
When I let her sink into my memory
Just long enough to make friends with
But today I look at her,
And I feel sorry for her,
Because she doesn't know
I've decided to leave her behind.
