(Un) Permanent

My heart is marked,

With the sharpie that is you.

It was a beautiful mark,

But it soon became a painful one.


When I left you,

I searched for a way to erase it.

Convincing myself with lies,

I fiercely erased you.


But today, I saw a film about confused hearts.

Strong as a tidal wave, you came back–again. 

Not knowing what to do,

I clutched my heart.


And there, I found your mark.

Still beautiful. Still painful.

Still there.
