The Places She Had Been

and the things she had seen, resurfaced

while driving by the town she used to live in-

the small apartment on a busy street,

and the dreams that died inside


the old stationery store

and all those sappy greeting cards

given away with love,

exchanged for lies


so many memories flooded her mind

like flashbacks before dying,

and she quickly got on the freeway

so she could breathe again


so she could go back

to the new life she had rebuilt-

despite the places she had been

despite the things she had seen
