Traces of poison
linger in my heart,
forcibly kept at bay.
I can still taste that bitter taste
of hope from being around you
and the painful, disgusting aftertaste of jealousy.
Your scent still lingers in my mind,
I smell it whenever I breathe,
and I feel I'm suffocating on it.
Your eyes are burnt into mine
because the second my eyes shut,
I see them.
Your voice, you laugh, your words
are embedded in my mind,
I can't get them out of my head.
The feeling of your soft hair,
the feeling of my heart breaking
has not been forgotten.
I've gotten rid of my foolish love
from my mind,
but my heart isn't ready to let go.
The poison still hangs dangerously
around my heart,
so disturbingly close
that it's seeping in.
