Leave The Cracks

by C Cattaway   Jan 17, 2018

Get out of my way! Why are you there?
Always there, in my head!
Blocking my heart seeing any but you.
Go play with traffic, instead.

Why is it so easy, feeling for you?
Wholly consuming my time.
Every hair stands on end, when you're near.
Get out of this head, of mine!

Photographs. Memories. All of them filled
With moments that you and I shared.
All of the years, simply frozen in sight,
With every second I've cared.

But nothing will come of this lust, or this pain.
But still I cannot shake the thought.
So get out of my head. Leave the cracks from my heart.
You can't give me the feelings I sought.

    A powerful piece written with your emotions of another person. It is so difficult to erase memories, especially if we have been hurt.
    A lovely flowing poem from you.
    *Just a note third line of first stanza- should 'any' read anything? or maybe not
    Much love

      Thankyou Michael. Ah, without hurt, where would we find the poetry?
      Yes, it should read as 'any but you'. I have the joy of having had an elocutionist for a mother ;-) She would turn in her grave if I had written a whole word, & taken the correctness from the sentence! Haha. I'm sure she'd be impressed by some of my spelling mistakes ;-) x
