And if I could
I would push this needle straight to my skin
Sewing up the edges to keep all the pain in

And if I could
I would tie the fraying seams tight
To give the illusion that everything is alright

And if I could
I would forget you ever existed
Pretend we never happened, so I don't need to fix it

And if I could
I would burn up every memory
But that's impossible, because you are a part of me

And if I could
I would tear the pain straight from my chest
I'd forget about you like I forgot all the rest

And if I could
I would get stitched up and be all better
Perfectly intact, just like all of your letters

And if I could
I would be just fine
Living life, though you're not mine

And if I could
All the haunting dreams would leave me
I wouldn't wake up and wish I were still dreaming

But I can't
Because you're everywhere

But I can't
Because you're nowhere

But I can't
Because we're through

But I can't
Because I miss you

That's stunning
I love the lines
"But I can't
Because you're everywhere

But I can't
Because you're nowhere"

i like it,sorry if it reflects something bad in your life right now but i like the fact that it speaks to real emotion and its raw,no smoke and mirrors or beating around the words

Painful to read.

It is a well written piece.
