I used you like I used myself
I have no emotions left to deplore
Just know I never wanted this
so move on and leave me now

I don’t love you but I do care
affection is such a blessing and a curse
We have felt so much pain alone
we thought it was infatuation

Maybe now we can move on
and realise never need to relive the past
No more lies of adoration
because we both know we will never last
I’ll take responsibility
but in the end
we were both guilty

You can be as truthful as you want
I am in no position to argue
Who I was is not who I strive to be
so please let’s promise we won’t fall apart again

Sometimes our ideas of ‘love’
just seem to complicate what we have
I’d rather live in platonic content
than to throw it all away over nothing

The End
