you stay

in the empty spaces
in the open places
im trapped in the middle
loving and then losing
i can’t let go of you
you stay

like water ruined by oil
stuck in the gash of my heart
how do i let you go?
everything i’ve tried and done
still you stay

all the time i spend trying to forget you
but like a medication
thriving in my blood
you stay

like incenses burning through my room
smoke on my jacket
gum on the bottom of my shoe
you stay with me
allowed me to be attached
then you left
leaving me drenched.
