Let Me Be - Poem by Jessica Lockhart

Please get out of my head
Can't you see I'm trying to sleep?
This is not where you belong
Once it was you I longed to keep

I've come to find that
You're hidden behind my eyes
I see you in every little thing
And I find it no surprise

You snuck into the song lyrics
That were supposed to be my escape
Now I deal with the silence
There is no escaping this fate

It's a sweet kind of destruction
When my thoughts linger on your name
The way your hand caressed my heart
But destroyed it all the same

I wish I could say that
You didn't haunt my dreams exquisitely
Yet anywhere I go
My thoughts stay on you unwillingly

I hold on like a fisherman
Clinging to it's line
Trying to reel in
What isn't meant to be mine

I know you won't read this but
Please, let me rest.
I'm tired of wasting sleep
Over this cliche mess
