been a while


I canít get you out of my brain
but I donít really want to
youíll be there forever
not like some desperate fool
that I might become
for using the thought of you
as a tool
to ease the longing in my lungs
my heart,
itís many parts
which Iíve scattered along the way
hoping one day
you may find me
like an unwanted child
in a house
in the woods
covered in trees

youíll be there forever
because Iíll never
ask you to leave,
because knowing
what existed
between us
is sometimes just enough
to ease this pain

I can still hear you sobbing
youíre desperate moans longing,
that I would change my mind
when it was your heart
that was destined
to scattered pieces
along the path
which I collected up
walking back into your heart
from the house
under the trees
in the woods

I miss you
like my bones have left my body,
I am jelly
heaped in the corner
like discarded dessert
that will never be eaten

fuck I hate this pain
I canít get you out of my brain.

I have to say that this is a most moving poem, admirably written. The reader can feel the pain and heartache. Transmitting emotions through the written word is a refined skill.
