On winter nights

my mind starts wandering

to memories from my past

that leave me pondering.

Would my life have been better

if I had chosen another path

or did I have a lucky escape

from someone’s wrath.

The grass is always greener

on the other side

unless that side may have

something to hide.

You can never really know

a person by looks alone,

it takes time to peel away

the layers that they have shown.

What you find may not be

what you wanted,

but by then it may be too late

and the whole experience

has left you haunted.
