Since today is also #ThrowbackThursday I decided to share one of my vintage pieces entitled Haunted for Day 1.
Written by Ericka Arthur – June 2016
There are moments when I’m angry.
Days when I don’t want to speak in code smeared in morse nor shielded by prose.
The air thick with quiet.
Forcing me to relive pain behind doors now closed.
Smothered by every flashback of you not having my back.
Haunted about lies shrouded in wasted times.
Taunted by my high road refusal to drop dimes.
Shamed and gag ordered by my response to pain.
‘Cause now there’s another that can drop my name.
