Cut Out My Heart - Poem by Patrick Shields

Even though its been eleven months since we broke up I still hurt inside
The same pain that I felt that sunday night that we decded to break up
I feel as though all that was good in me has quietly and slowly died
I've even turned to cutting my temporary flesh but its just not enought

It also seems that I can never in a billion years ever stop loving you
So one last request from me to you would you please cut out my heart
And keep it on your shelf to remember all the good and bad times too
I just can't love again I can't go back to square one and just restart

I've come to the point that I don't know what true love is anymore
Except for you that is your the one who showed me what love is
I know that things will never be the same just like it was before
With the way you held me in your embrace and the feel of our first kiss

Don't get me wrong thought I'm happy that you feel whole again
But I'm afraid that one could never love me like you still do
It also seems that my whole teenage life has been completly ruined
I'm not you blaiming you at all thought trust me I promise it wasn't you

I don't know I guess I'm also nervous that I'll feel this way until I die
And I don't know how much more I can take of everything of all of this
I wish though I could be promised happiness but that would just be a lie
I would do anything to have that again like before whatever the risk

So as I said before I still fell the same way I did that Sunday night full of pain
And I really just can't simply go back to square one and just restart
Because it is getting unbearable and driving to the brink of being insance
So as I asked you before would you please just simply cut out my heart
