Behind me

I’ve left it behind

but it still drags along

attached to my ankles by a chain.

I left it behind

but I’m not too strong

Its starting to drive me insane.

I thought it was gone

but I can feel its weight

making every step harder

with every step that I take.


“leave it” “forget about it” these sayings that people constantly throw don’t work for most people, as they haven’t processed it, or acknowledged something and therefore when they do this, they slowly feel it pulling them back because they never fully were able to let go.
