Ghost At My Heels (Revised)


The ghost of my past at my heels.
Got to get away.
Got to run.
Do you have any idea how I feel.
When your so close I remember everything I don't want to.
It's like a razor blade across my wrist.
Go ahead leave another scar.
I've already been marred, by a distant oblivion.

So what does it really matter,
with the ghost of my past at my heels.
Got to get away.
Got to run,
as far as I can.
There can not be enough distance between us.
For you make me feel so trapped.
Just end my life here and now if you think you can.
I feel like I'm stuck in quick sand.
Don't move for you might get more sucked in.
So stand by and watch me and do nothing my friend.
You'll get yours in the end.
I will escape these shackles and chains.

With the ghost of my past at my heels.
I just got to get away.
I just got to run,
as fast as I can.
Watch as the head spins.
A world full of those always in hurry.
Well I've come to stay.
Let me build my fort, protect myself from all outsiders.
Kicking and screaming they're drug off one by one.
They just don't understand.
There is no such thing as innocent.
There is no good versus evil.
It's just me and them.
Got to keep them out till the very end.

With the ghost of my past at heels.
I just got to get away.
I just got to run.
For it's so hard to tell whats real.
Liars paint the landscape.
With the broken promises and half truths.
Everyone is trying to pull the best con.
The rip off the century.
Absolutely, certainly, and anything but truthfully.

With the ghost of my past at my heels.
I just got to get away.
I just got to run, somehow, someway, someday.
I am still alive.
So I must fight.
With all my heart I promise this.
And this time there will be no forgiveness.
For those so utterly completely indifferent.
You can all just die.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
