Keep the key

My heart is like a storage unit
It holds and holds until it has to be emptied

It's a boyfriend you can't get over
It's a hurt that you don't understand
It's a family member you've lost
It's a goal you've waited years to reach
It's a fight you've won after battling it for 5 years
It's a dream you've decided to hide for too long
It's an addiction you've finally got past
It's a situation you've deployed in honor

My heart is a universe
It breathes the things it's endured
It follows where it can live
Dies when it's afraid
Reassures itself when it's at rock bottom
It's only so much

You can keep the key
Just don't forget me
Still; I'll be beating
