Soul Deep Sting

I let you carve your name
onto my heart,
let you etch your face
into my dreams
You became permanent,
a soul deep tattoo
that left me hovering
between heaven and hell


And now this ache is all that’s left,
bruised and broken moments
imprinted in my mind,
shoebox memories that I can’t hide,
and the sting of knowing
that I’ll never rid myself of you
