Ghosts that lurk,
in the hallways of the mind.
Not through intention of fear,
but reminders of hell,
periods of heaven,
and dreams yet to imagine.

How easy it is to surrender,
to sadness,
  dreams left shattered.
Why joy,
 can't be remembered as easily.

Perhaps we can't,
 reflect on the happy times,
because then the pain can consume,
because of the losses.
A defense mechanism,
 built into our hearts,
to keep it from breaking all over again.

Though  ghosts may always be lurking,
I am unafraid.
For where there is darkness,
I know....
There is also light.
