Awake at 2 AM

Countless times I've tried

To force you down to the deepest depths of my mind

But each time, you come right back up.

No matter how many times I've denied it

The thought of you still

Makes my heart flutter.

Your dancing eyes, the scent of your cologne

—I've got to get you off my mind.

Your voice, the soft, reassuring touch of your hand

—I must get you out of my mind.

The memories, laughter

—No, I need to get you out of my heart,

Shove you out the door

Slam it lock it tight

And melt the key

So it won't go on poking

The sore spots any longer.

But for tonight, I'll imagine

Your arms wrapped around me


I find that door.
