My Own Worst Enemy

THE KNIFE

there’s a knife
in my heart
you think I
blame you
but I know
it was all me
I pierced
my own heart
a reminder
not blame
I fight you
for control
won’t let you
pull it out
you think
you’ll heal me
but you won’t
as long as it
remains lodged
my heart beats
and blood stays
where it belongs
pulsing pain
a reminder
not blame
