I wish I could scrub you from my skin But your fingerprints have seeped through to my soul You left smudges, marks on my windows And now, I think I will never be free of you You have ruined me for anyone else I don't shine quite the same And it's a shame Because... I've given so much of myself that now, I'm left with only pieces of who I once was After you waltzed in like the Devil in the pale moonlight With your promises as empty as they were And your "I love you's" even I knew they were lies as they fell from your lips But I believed them And I actually thought you were different Silly me because I'll be spending a spell Trying to wipe you away I refuse to be dirtied by the likes of you
You know you’re the only one- The love of my life, the one I care about, The one my heart belongs to. So why are you fixated on my past? Those relationships mean nothing to me. Those were a long time ago- Before we found each other, Before I knew what true love was.
You don’t like that I keep my old poems, Those that were written to celebrate old romances, Or to mourn past breakups and heartaches. But I keep them because I like compiling them, Because they’re my creative work, Because poetry is my emotional outlet. Not because I harbor any feelings for my exes. That’s just ridiculous. Their names don’t ignite any emotions or memories. So love, please cast aside your insecurities Because you’re the only one in my heart- The one I belong to, the one I belong with.
