The Corner Of My Heart: A Poem

Updated on April 10, 2012

You are locked inside where no one can see

In a small corner of the heart of the old me.


I keep you there, but I never say your name

My little secret, you still look the same.


I’ve tried to forget you and erase your face

but you’ve left an impression and earned your space.


I feel like a traitor for keeping you here

I’ve already moved on, but I still hold you dear.


It pains me to say that, I’ll deny it ‘til death

“No, I don’t remember him”, a lie on my breath.


After that untruth, my face would surely blush

My heart would race, my blood would rush.


I’d see visions of you so many years before

the sound of your laughter in my ears once more.


Will you ever vacate that space in my heart?

Will I ever forget you and your very best parts?


Will I stop feeling guilty for remembering you?

I wonder if I’m a secret in the corner of your heart too.

      This is a wonderful expression of how many of us feel about past loves. I think the truth is that they become part of us and we couldn't get rid of them if we wanted. All to often, I think it is also true that we don't want them to go. Part of us wants to hang on. You've done a great job of expressing this. Thanks for sharing.

      Voted up and awesome. I believe we carry many special people in our hearts and minds as the song goes some memories just won't die.
