Random Poem:

The Past Is Alive

So near, yet, so far away,
Just one call,
Would ease my mind
Settle my curiousity.
Put it down to selfishness,
Or even the fact that
You ight be scared of what you find.
Look what you've left behind.
Regret it? Maybe,
Nobodies fault but your own.
Take a glance,
Do you recognise the past?
Make the connection
Old ghosts may settle then.
