Hometown ~~ dVersePoets week 12

In honor of a weekend trip to my hometown–Seattle–I bring you my submission for this week’s dVersePoets #OpenLinkNight.


these streets
unfolding under my feet
of past lovers
around the contours of
my memory
luring me into
dark doorways
smelling of lost hope…
my past
is before me

I stand, turning circles
that building
memory ghosts
through broken windows
a former self
loathing and addiction
aimlessness and hate
I tremble, don’t cry
I think of
your hand in mine
my present, my future
my love
