It Was You I Had To Lose

It used to be love
Respect
And companionship

Now it’s hate
Disrespect
And all that shit

What happened to love letters
All the emails
And all that sext

I miss how it used to be
Respect for you
Respect for me
Leaves me asking
What’s next?

Endless devotion
Hearts full of emotion

We said I love you
And really meant it
All our passion
We really dreamt it

Too much interference
No trust to intercept
Referee called Time Out
You wouldn’t acknowledge
Continued to shout

I saw the writing on the wall
Turned to walk
You decided to crawl
Beg and stalk

You refused to acknowledge the signs
Which to me were clear
We had to let go
We had to say goodbye
Tell our souls not to cry

Meeting you wasn’t by chance
Leaving was due to circumstance

There was no option for me
No matter how hard you beg and plea
Being a side is no life for me
This is something you chose not to see

I deserve more
Than the life of a whore
A life of little respect
I had to put my life in check

If its really love you feel for me
Why would you want that for me
Why would that be OK
For my happiness to rot away

I took myself for granted
Had to get my feet firmly planted
Had to say “No more of this I choose”
It was you I had to lose.
