Let It Go

Although time has passed they still come to me

In my dreams they still torment 

Even in their death memories do not decompose 

Logic tells me I am no longer in danger 

My heart yearns to trust 

To give my all to another these thoughts must abate

There is no room for hate

Fear and torment will not be my fate

There will be a way 

I still have faith

Waking

Wake to the sun shining

Birds singing urgently outside my window

The smell of morning dew in the air

Clearing my foggy mind

Carefully tucking away the nightmares

Each one in its own place

Waiting for the dark

When my eyes close

They slither from their carefully constructed cells

Forgetting the demons of the night

Raising my eyes to the warm sunlight

Allowing hope to fill my day
