Heartworm-a realtionship or friendship that you can't get out of your head, you thought it had faded long ago, but it's still somehow alive and unfinished.

everyone has that someone,
that you just cant seem to forget.
no matter the distance you try to put between yourselves.
all the miles and miles you run.
all the time in the world doesnt seem to help.
even if you havent seen them in years and years.
even if you know too much has happened.
that you cant go back to where you were.
even though you know in the pit of your stomach
that you arent right for each other.
that moving forward is in your best interest.
you get up every single day and tell yourself
that today you wont think of them.
their name wont cross your mind,
you will not miss them.
all the lies we tell ourselves.
distractions are futile.
you've tried to move on before
but you're heart wasnt in it
and you've left heartache in your wake.
now you're afraid to try.

so you carry with you always
the heaviness in your chest.

loves thorns.
it won't be the last.
though you will never forget
this too shall pass.

helminthophobia -fear of being infested with worms.


  1. Just stopping by from the A-Z Challenge list to say "Hi" :)

    Great post honey.

    Good luck with the rest of the challenge!


  2. Good post and very well written!
    I had no idea there was a phobia of being infested with worms.
    You learn something new every day!


  3. This is such raw writing. Everyone has a heartworm or two, but do we learn from the experience? Hope you enjoy the rest of the Challenge. Happy A to Zing.

  4. Are you serious? People are scared of being infested by worms? That is bizarre. The metaphorical heartworm is a much more commonly experienced and dangerous beast. Well written. Helminthophobia? Seriously?

  5. I have never been afraid of worms.... til now LOL
    just kidding, the poem made me think of someone :)


  6. Maybe they need to come up with Heartworm medication for humans---- we could all take the monthly chew, like our mutts and we'll never be infected----

    And, after studying biology, I'm completely aware of the vast of array of nasty worms that can and do infect humans---- actually, a very large percentage of humans in the world ARE infected with some kind of parasite... *shudder*
