Ghosts of Relationships Past

How odd it seems now
looking back on all that was
now that I am learning
the dangers of asking
because it just might come to you
I wanted to believe
that I could make a difference
that I might mean something
to someone
in my search for the elusive soulmate
I found myself regretting
things left behind
ah,but they returned
I feel as if a part
of God's plan to regain me
from out of the darkness
following His 12 step plan
facing the demons of my past
they resurface one by one
haunting me
like Scrooge on christmas eve
there is one I dread over all others
the last spirit
the hardest one to face
for in equal parts
do I fear
and hope
