Past Life

Past Life

A Poem by Sarah Hale

Who are you?
You claim to know me well,
the girl who swung for 'casting spells'
you say you watched her long ago
and know things now
no one should know
like details of her life forgot
perhaps you are why she swung?
she hopes you are not
but she does not know what's in the past
or how long was that shadow cast
that bitter brought a seeming hate
at thought of speaking once again
she wants to speak to you
she does
but what would she say?
because
the shimmering shadow of doubt
wonders if maybe she's better left out
for what if somewhere in the passage of time
she made a mistake that she cannot unwind
and caused someone's dear
to be hurt for her sake
and that is the reason
she was sent to her grave?
