so many fish
in the sea
yet
none really interest me
even if someone did
catch my eye
i don’t feel ready
i don’t have the courage yet
to try
again
that stab in the back
may be only a scar
now
but the memory of the wound
is still fresh

  1. Even memories need to be put to rest, as I’m working on this as well. It’s hard, I know. The past tends to cling, sometimes acting as a parasite there to suck out any vision of the future. We are lost in what we lost, so to speak.
