“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” - C. S. Lewis

I unlocked the doors to my heart
The many chains that had kept it closed and safe
I resurrected the key and opened it
For you
Just for you
I felt the clouds part
Sunlight, true light was flooding into my world
I was breathing you in
And you became a part of me
You molded into the thoughts swimming in my mind
You became one with the beat of my heart
You became the warmth in my blood
You became the flush in my cheeks
The twinkle in my eye
Was you
My feet could not touch the ground
My face reflected the sun
I was aglow
For you
Just for you
I fell in love with your eyes
Your laugh
Your smile
Your quirks
Your tears
Your scars
Your heart
All of you
All of you did not love me
You loved her
Now I close my doors shut
I relock my heart
The sun has faded
I am tearing you out of me
I release you from my breath
I peel you from my thoughts
I break you from the beat of my heart
I drain you from my blood
My cheeks are now frozen
My eyes have dulled
Because of you
Just you
I have crashed onto the ground
My face resembles the night sky
I now destroy the key
Though deep inside
Deep inside the cold darkness of my heart
A bit of you resides
A small ember from a fire we once shared
I keep it
And I won’t let that go
Not for you
For me
Just for me.
