You left me a mess of maggots in my heart...

The worm in my head

Eats away at the space you once filled

Memories and mementos

Scar my mind

The objects you left behind

Mean nothing to me

The scar in my heart

Festers

Maggots there erase the pain you left behind

Eat, eat away worm

I wish to forget you ever existed.

Excellent. You capture all that pain and heartbreak beautifully, and in so few words. You tried any Haikus?

Thank you. And no, I've never tried writing one before.
