Poetry by Emily Craig

“My Chapter”


Closing old feelings

is oh so hard,

opening up to new ones

is even scarier.

I’m taking that step –

a step towards me.

I’ve been finding myself

for months now.

But the ghosts of my past

are interfering with my progress.

They hit and poke me –

trying to make me crack again.

Not this time,

Not right now.

I’m moving forward.
