“The past haunts…”

"The Past Haunts"

This is how the poem reads: “The Past Haunts” “The past haunts at the peripheries…” Anxiety lingers on the sides Always reminding, reminding, you of past mistakes, that you made. It haunts you when you least want it. It haunts you when it is sunny rainy, cloudy with a chance of (meatballs) (fear) “If the past is prologue…” then I keep reading the beginning of my life.

I just thought I would share a poem with everyone that I wrote today. I was tinkering with word placement and I think I did ok. The text got a little screwy on WordPress so I took a picture of the actual poem I hand wrote(above). Here is my poem “The Past Haunts”:
