Three years later 
you still dance on the edges of my memories
Your eyes sparkling,
your teeth still showing through 
that charming smile on your face. 

Three years later
I haven't forgotten the demons
that live behind your eyes
and the snake that lives in that cage,
guarded by porcelain bars. 

Three years later 
and you still pull on my heart strings.
You make me feel 
uncomfortable, scared, wrong
You are everything you shouldn't be. 

Three years later
I beg you to leave every day
Three years later 
you never do.
