the past interferes far more with the future,
than the present ever will,
because i know so much lies there,
yet you choose to love me still.

weve apologized for everything,
and tried to let it all go,
but it still haunts us both,
more than we seem to know.

all the old love letters,
still in that box,
all the memories that linger,
when the walls seem to talk.

all the goodbyes,
that we wonder if there final,
burning bridges now,
may bring pain tomorrow.

the past is like a shadow,
sinking in your head,
during your darkest hours,
reminding you of what was sayed.

of all the old i love yous,
still inside our hearts,
of all the ignorant mistakes,
that tore our souls apart.

everything that were affriad to say,
is lost in the past,
but will be found someday,
if this love is ment to last.

Isn't that the truth...how our past haunts us. It doesn't even have to be our past that troubles us. Yes, you struck a cord with this one. I am glad you wrote it becasue I would not have.

Another good insightful poem Amber! Yes...the past can haunt one. It got so bad for me that it interfered with my future. I found myself sinking at a time in my life when I should be going forward, all because of a past I couldn't forget. So I burned love letters, bridges, and lots of midnight oil. I walked away, won't look back, and nothing rules me but me. Damn the torpedos, full speed ahead!

I too have had to fight the ghosts of the past, and in most cases it's not even my own past that I must overcome. I like the feeling behind this work. Very insightful! However, one small note (as if I were one to talk), you might wish to check the spelling. Thanks for sharing!
