The Same

by Lakesha Jenkins

My thoughts flow into the river of memory
Channeling my yesteryears
I see the eyes of the one who haunts me
Whisper softly in my ears
I am afraid…
Afraid to move forward and afraid to go back
Into a past that rushed me into a womanhood my mind could not grasp
Hands seek me in the darkness
I try to hide
I cannot escape
I hear my mind call out it was his fate
This cannot be
Death has no right to let this be
Taking everything…I have nothing left
What are horrid horrid circumstance
I sleep yet find I cannot rest
I feel your presence ..your energy
My arms open wide 
You cannot hold me 
You are gone….
Gone into the void of nothingness
All the moments wasted
Time I can never reclaim
Walking wounded knowing
Nothing will ever be the same
