saying goodbye to demons

I returned today to where I once enjoyed dreams,

that were shattered and killed by the sound of my screams…

I went back today to say goodbye to the ghost

that has lived in the heart of this unwilling host

I went back today, and I sat at that place

and allowed many tears to run down my face,

I sat for a while, and just let go…

and in quiet meditation  bade the monster “please go…”

and after a while, I felt filled with relief

as in quiet meditation, I let go of the grief

I said goodbye to the monstro, who has haunted me so

cos I know to go forward, you have to let go…

One thought on “saying goodbye to demons

  1. Truer than true, and the only way forward.

    Perhaps I was sent here today to confirm this path. I looked down my list and the Spirit said, “That one. Read that one.” I’m so glad I did!
