No Duplicate

My heart has no duplicate
The scars you have inflicted
Chunks you have taken out
There for the rest of my life
Though I tend to them
With the utmost care
Though you bring me sorry
On rose buds and words
The damage is done
It always remains
Barbs and anger dig holes
Into the soft flesh
For me to fall into
Every now and again
When you start
The same journey
We’ve been on before
I step back, step out
Remove myself from the space
Because
My heart has no duplicate
