Stay In My Heart (a poem)

I want to let the tears out
They’re hiding right behind
My eyes
But they won’t fall
No matter how much pain they cause
My heart
‘Cuz deep down I know
I can’t cry you out

You’re a part of me now
Inside every part
You’re there
And crying won’t let you out
Screaming won’t do a thing
I tried to get rid of you
A long damn time ago
But you just stood
Made yourself comfortable
In my heart
And that’s where you
Decided to stay

You haunt me
Like the ghosts you’re always chasing
I’ll never catch you, though
You’ll float here forever
Eternally lost inside
This labyrinth that I call a heart
Causing these emotions
I don’t understand
I can’t exorcise
Your image from my mind
But deep down I know
I would never want to anyway

You’re a part of me now
Inside every part
You’re there
And crying won’t let you out
Screaming won’t do a thing
I tried to get rid of you
A long damn time ago
But you just stood
Made yourself comfortable
In my heart
And that’s where you
Decided to stay

You let yourself in
With barely a request
I should never have accepted
But how could I have refused?
Wee don’t choose who we keep inside of
Our broken, shattered hearts
You just realize one day
That this person you never imagined
Could mean so much to you
Is here to stay
And you never want then to leave

You’re a part of me now
Inside every part
You’re there
And crying won’t let you out
Screaming won’t do a thing
I tried to get rid of you
A long damn time ago
But you just stood
Made yourself comfortable
In my heart
And that’s where you
Decided to stay
