The Key

by Erin Jones

I gave you a piece of me, a vital part
That could so easily destroy my heart
You took it with a look in your eye to impart
The fact that you would start picking me apart
Slowly, not missing any little piece or part

As the pieces fall further
I begin to grow colder
The world is now a stranger
I am losing all willpower
But I want to keep you forever

My stupidity reared its head
And left a dark trail of red
Wherever it conquered and bled
It didn’t matter what you said
I would have followed where you led

My sanity just blew a gasket or two
The worst thing I never thought I’d do
Stuck so hard on someone like you
Hanging on no matter what you do
Because my stupid heart happens to love you

I can’t tell anyone about you anymore
Any faith in me would fall to the floor
I’m stooping so low, it’s making me sore
My dignity has disappeared into my core
But apparently, you’re all that matters anymore

I knew the power of that piece
But I never thought you’d do this to me
You caught me long before I could see
How much it would take from me
To love you so desperately
