Dark corners

I’m almost embarrassed to admit 

I walk down old streets I abandoned  

I still recall places I hid out in fear  

As time and life chased my shadow  

But it still all feels the same to me 

It’s a wonder that I ever got away  

These are streets of cogent monsters  

I never knew how great I might’ve been 

Turned the wrong way on the right road  

So many more mistakes I might’ve made  

I don’t wonder about if I had stayed  

I wasn’t made for this type of place  

I lost friends that have forgotten me  

But I never forgot their… friendships
