A Haunting Past
Some people have a past
that tends to come back and bite them in the ass.
They look straight ahead striding lightly
avoiding the darkness behind them.
Slowly the darkness begins to trim
the light away
leaving them to stray into a path of gray
not good, nor bad
but all the same leaving this person awfully sad
because now he has to leave the light completely.
There are no more shades of gray
as he has to stray
away from family and friends.
to tread the lonely path into the court room
as he walks he feels the room become his tomb
locking him in the darkness forever...
