Shellfish

You try and keep your thought alive.
The simple memory locked away.
Constant reminders alone I strive.
To hide shared moments today.

You wonder how it will be without.
Afraid, you ask me to save you.
In case there is a love drought,
A comforting soul that you once knew.

You won’t tell me to leave.
Or give me a firm no.
Giving my thoughts room to breathe,
For my sake, girl, let me go!

It’s time to sever the ties.
I know how this will end.
I find new feelings to disguise,
That you broke my heart again.

Cut me loose, set me free!
So I can erase your memory.
