the past follows you

by taking off the mask (writer), Los Angeles, November 28, 2009

theres a pain deep inside.
although it trys to hide, its still stuck in your mind.
if you see it, close your eyes, its something you would rather not find.
it is so alive, but you want it to die, but it stays there on the side.
it hunts you down, everytime bringing a frown.
its like the color brown; a bunch of colors mixed together but its to late to fix, its all part of its fate.
its served on a plate, and no matter how much you hate it, its still there.
you try to throw it away, but it wont slip off the plate.
you have no choise but to eat it, to deal with it.
you feel it slime inside of you.
its sealed in there for life.
you might feel you have healed but trust me you haven't.
everytime you think about it, it saddens you.
you lived this nightmare and it still haunts you.
it wants to consume you.
the fear grows on you.
your self-esteem seems to disappear so you try to gain it back.
but everytime the pain throws you back.
you lack in knowlege on how to get back on track.
its drawn on your map, it seems to follow you and it will still be there tomorrow.
but that doesn't mean you should live today in sorrow

Facing your inner demons is a refreshing way to look at the many parts of your life. Letting them go, time after time, is a good practice. You are right that that do not mearly disappear, they pop up when one least expects it and you can get dragged back to the past in a flash. Let it go, let it go, let it go. There is rebirth in doing this. Nice!
