A shadow of your actions
Yet as heavy as a stone
Hangs like a like a noose
Around the neck
Leaving your soul
Feeling naked and vulnerable.

A lost battle that can’t be won.
Lingering like a ghost
The past always seems to haunt
It’s grip; sometimes gentle
Sometimes tight but
Forever weighing on the conscience.

Embarrassment. Apathy.
Pride denied; truth exposed;
Crushed dreams and desires.
Dust and shame is all that is left.
Blinking back the hot tears
That burn,
She’s convinced beyond doubt
That the world is unfair.
