A Tricky Place

tricky

The past lies in a tricky place
Let it die without a trace
Mistaken ghosts will give a chase
Its only life you need embrace
Living life is no disgrace
The past lies in a tricky place
Beware

Traveling the past can be a slippery ride
Full of shadows and forgotten ghosts
Auctions and bargains from souls unseen
Shrill screaming orators of ill-riposte

Treacherous are its forbidden pathways
Paved by misbegotten and sullen mistakes
Don’t hunt for answers hidden in days gone by
Allow them to remain secret for all of our sakes

History’s a steep slope of events best forgotten
Where we camouflage our innermost dreams
The ghosts of our judgments can haunt us relentless
Your scene of remembrance is not what it seems

Some covert discretions are best left under cover
Buried deep in the recesses of a selective recalling
Because once unshrouded and out in plain sight
The new light you shed may shine you appalling

Don’t keep it let it go
No one else needs to know
Rerun’s never as good as the show
No such debt you ever owe
Leave the truth buried deep below

Don’t concede to any condition
Only you can give permission
You’ve shown enough of your contrition
The truth is not a vision
It’s apparition

The past lies in a tricky place
Let it die without a trace
Mistaken ghosts will give a chase
Its only life you need embrace
Living life is no disgrace
The past lies in a tricky place

      • Thanks! I understand that morsel of wisdom. Imitation as the highest compliment. my husband and I own our little store in Tampa. We have been offered some opportunities that we want to pursue for next year. Would you know of anyone who might want to move to Tampa and buy our business. We are selling the equipment and all for $8000. We can provide more information.

      • Personally I don’t, this is a tough business and I think people are finally realizing it takes work. I do know some people in the Orlando area and I will inquire with them about serious buyers

      • We have been in business over 3 years. Both my husband and I have other jobs also. We do have a faithful following. I have some serious problems with my hip but hopefully I will be ok. Thank you.
