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
shadows
of past lovers
slithering
around the contours of
my memory
static
luring me into
dark doorways
smelling of lost hope…
my past
is before me

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