The Corner Of My Heart: A Poem
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.
