seeking forgiveness
   or an exorcist
for the ghosts that have been resurrected to life
   by the subconscious psyche
swirling images of yesteryear
   could have been's
the cumulative pile of what-ifs
   and never were's
all quaintly risen up
   and strutting about
in their see-through veneers.

The psyche churns
   and along with it
   the layers of silt underneath
like the tide
   exposing, emerging
   divulging - 
   a new old set of emotional turbulence
shifting through the debris
   seeking something valuable
   though the wreckage may be unsalvageable.

Who needs the devil?
   when the mind plays advocate
   all on its own.
