Slide

You slip into the long slide
Being buffetted from side to side
The sharp sting of memories
Still sharp enough to hurt.
It’s a long way down
Caught up on the long slide
Where it moves too fast to hide
From your own old ghosts.
If you survive the long slide
You come out  without a sound
Wiping yourself down
Getting rid of the thoughtful grime.
Walk away from the slide
Forget the visions on the painful ride
Climb the ladder that’s still so high
That’s a new slide for you to try
