Facing Fears

Pounding of drums vibrate
Against my skull
I scream 
I cry
I dont want to say goodbye
To the past that once
Held me down.
I can still hear
echoes of the chains 
slamming my heart.
Even if I let go.
The drums play on and on
Replaying my mistakes.
Wishing a switch
could shut it off.
 I am terrified 
turning it off.
knowing it belongs
as a part of me.
 keeping my fear
stored in a box
Past is a ghost
that never leaves.
Waiting for its chance
to strike.
