The Past

the past
is a play
of lost opportunities
with no entrance point
to make them peaceful

they play on the mind
and interupt the body’s flow
with no resolution in sight

they hover
the little unhappinesses
looking for something
in common
that their voices joined
might be sooner heard

they themselves
have no idea
that they are lost
that their time
has come and gone

they wait and weight
until with courage
YOU dissolve them
into light
that they might
be fulfilled
through other
circumstances
in some other life
