I'm not particularly enamored of this one, but your thoughts (and criticisms) are welcome.
So he went to a doctor, a neurosurgeon
And said "Will you please destroy all the cells
"That hold all my memories of her so I'll no longer
"Live with her ghost in this pain, this hell"
And the doctor said, "Sure, it's a simple procedure
"We stick in a virus so clever and smart
"It can read every synapse and impulse it finds
"And in a few hours, be done, dead, and gone"
But the virus kept hunting and finding more traces
Of this madness that afflicted his soul for so long
And cell after cell it continued destroying
Until the poor fool was a vegetable
No, just kidding, it took only an hour
After which, he awoke and the pain was gone
And he hardly knew why he had been so depressed
And the doctor said "Look up and forward, your future awaits you
"The past that was haunting you's now dead and gone"
And he went on to live other forbidden lives
Never missing the one who had torn out his heart
