You lock yourself up

In a room filled with smoke

You drink every tear you cry

In your dreams he hunts you

A lover you never would have chosen

You wake up crying

Terrified he might come back

And yet you carve his name on your heart

Day after day; night after night

He’s the wound you won’t let heal

You bleed unwanted love

Leaving an indelible trail

You claim it’s not a choice

Throw up the walls around you

But I have dynamite

And I’m not afraid to use it

You can let him go

I’ll help you burn the bridges

Hand you the knife to cut the ropes

You won’t ever erase him completely

But if you let me help you

He won’t be around every corner

You won’t hear his voice everyday

His rejection won’t burn like a poker

He won’t be in every shadow

I can help, if you’d let me

So please

Take my hand

And together

We’ll lock his memory up

Weight it down

And drown it in a river

He’ll never bother you again.

~ Bluebell Rizzi.
