memories of him leak intrusive thoughts throughout my mind,

leaving a depressive stain enrooted in me.

to remove it i tear apart every memory of him.

i rip them out of my head and crush them with my heel,

but it's not enough.

i pick up the shattered pieces and dig them into my skin,

until the ground is stained identically to my mind.

only now the stain is red.

the red stain is a reminder not to fall in love,

all it does is tear you apart.

The author's comments:

I wrote this piece while in a depressive episode and it holds a special place in my heart. Now that I'm doing better mentally I see this piece has a milestone, I no longer feel the way I felt when writing this and so I'm extremely proud of it.
