friday five

It's been a while since I've posted, I thought I'd try my hand at one of the daily prompts I frequent.

gone

it is essential to my life
to get rid of the sour taste
you left behind, to become an
absent memory, i might
be able to take a catnap
if it weren't for the disagreeable
past i have to dream about.

I am still reminded of my past from time to time through dreams. I wish there was a way to let it go without rehashing it all over again and again. If you find the secret, let me know. Well done. Have a nice night.
