Past Pluperfect

Can the past be overcome?
“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. ” (F. Scott Fitzgerald)

The past is prologue so they say

It informs our present and our future. 

It makes me wonder if there is a way

To escape the past and its pain. 

Some memories warm the heart, 

Others make anguish live again. 

There were times so very warm, 

Of unconditional affection, 

Then unspeakable harm. 

There are scars you cannot see, 

But you must accept them

If you are to love me. 

I want to laugh, to love, to live, 

To find life’s passion with you, 

Taking all that life can give. 

It is hard for me to trust. 

The past holds me back, 

But go forward I must

Battered by fate but still brave, 

And still fighting the current, 

Not the past’s slave.

I am what life made me, 

The sum of all parts, 

The ones who have played me, 

And all the broken hearts. 

But there are moments of bliss

Making the journey worthwhile. 

Yes, your precious kiss

And being held in your arms, 

Trusting that here

I am safe from all harms.

I am running out of ways to describe your writing. I guess all I need to say is I love it x

A beautiful poem. In this the past is clearly a painful place and the present has solace. A nice twist as it is sometimes the other way around. Gorgeous writing. xxx

I love the raw emotion and honesty. I'm sure there are moments when we all feel like that. Self-awareness is perhaps both the curse and salvation of humanity (As a minor aside: I found a couple of the rhymes a little 'forced', found they upset the rhythm and wondered if the rhyme scheme were really necessary? Did it help you or was it a hindrance?) It is beautifully written and well-deserves the RR accolade. Well done x
