Today’s quadrille challenge from DVerse was to use the word “echo.” Here is my response. It is about memories that continue to come back, even though I’d rather forget them. Thankfully, there aren’t many of them, but I think everyone has some experiences like that.
I hear you, former me, echoing
Through the maze of my mind
And the caverns of my soul,
Memories haunt me like a poltergeist,
But they will not turn me into the
Living dead; they always come back,
But I too will rise again.
