My Ghosts

They warned me what I would carry
If I invested myself in others.

Now, I have ghosts all around me.
The fade into one another.
And haunt me each day.

Within the embrace of their arms,
They each took their pieces.
Now they stand around me and I plea

"Give me my pieces back."
But they fade so easily.
It's strange to be stripped of so much and still whole.

I've gathered up my pieces to take home.
Now I'm twice the woman I was.
But I was only half to start with.

How is it they can mean so much to me, and yet so little?
For I feel the great significance they leave on me.
But it's not my burden anymore.

Finally comfortable in my own skin,
I don't need to worry about who I let in.
