His Past Lover (Poem #10)

I have always hated his past
I once said,
“I am haunted by her ghost
could you please let her go?”

I clenched my fist
afraid that he might say no
but instead he said,
“I already did a long time ago”
and I sighed with relief

Little did I know
that “ghost” was the wrong word
for she’s alive as she can be
someone absent
yet remained a threat

I realized that my mistake
was not trusting him too much
but it was forgetting to ask
“who she was
who she is
who she will be”

and then those words
will make him say
“she was
she is
and will always be
a part of me”

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
