Take everything down; except for my one true love

2009 poems

Take the bottle of the shelf
And give it away to someone
Because my heart doesn’t live here anymore.
I cry when I hear that you’re loved
And I’m just sitting here wondering
Why I had ever let my mind get the best of my selfish
Heart and pride.

Take the box off the shelf
And give to someone else
Who you once loved
Or even totally trusted

When I think about opening up either one
I break down and cry
That I was really the only one
