Your Heart Is My Grave - Poem by Kathryn Garner

I know I'm in your heart
I just wish I could break out
And steal myself back again
I just pray this is the end
Of me falling apart
Because I'm still in your heart

I wish feeling could save
But you heart is now my grave
And mines you
And mine, baby, is yours
Cuz I know I'm in your heart
Just let me bury myself
This torture doesn't help

I understand its gone
(but I keep you)
but I keep holding on to you
I know this ending must be wrong
(it was everything to lose)
now I have nothing to lose
(now I can just hold on to you

I try and let the story die
(I need to fix the ending)
this is the broken ending
and no matter how I try
(I'll keep pretending)
I cant keep pretending
(this goddamn poor broken ending)

I turn away to the past
(and think of all I love)
and think of all I lack
my loves story from first to last
(let me stray back [to that])
just let me stay looking back
(all I lack, what I wont ever get back)

let me mend these dirty wounds
(clean away the blood)
wash away all the blood
what else can I ever do
(when I love you)
(I killed away all I loved)
wash away all I've loved
(if only I could wipe you away)
