Taken by surprise, there you were.
Like a mouse in a house full of cats and dogs I hid.
My past was there standing before my eyes.
Your eyes looked into mine from a distance.
We looked away at the same time.
I wondered if you remembered all the pain you caused me while looking into my eyes.
Is that why you looked away?
I felt anger but common sense told me to just look away.
You got on a different train cart as me.
I avoided seeing you again.
The past looked into my eyes today.
The past hid behind another train cart.
The past didn’t apologize.
The past didn’t try to come near my present.
The past is what you are.
The past is where you will forever stay.
