I Am Your Past

I am your past come face to face
Be forewarned and sit astride
All you thought you could erase
Sloshes back in with the tide

I am asking for this dance
Time’s a nut you cannot crack
Specters appear as if by chance
What’s forgotten is what you lack

I have come in with you to dine
Like sacraments, I fill each space
With a sweet or bitter wine
