Once I used to love you
but now its just an obligation,
the joy and laughter we used to share,
transformed into sorrows and pain.
In every argument a threat to leave ,
your bags packed waiting for a command…
and yes once I used to love you,
But now its just an obligation.
I have pinched a tent in my loneliness,
a familiar place I once embraced.
The cold in the night that burns my skin,
no fire can even warm.
A storm of sadness
pregnant with tears ,
not even the rain can wash off.
Once I used to love you,
but now its just an obligation.
I am ashamed of what love plants,
weeds of desolation is what I reap
hands together for awhile
every mile covered with lies.
The promises of forever in mind,
it’s hard to picture tomorrow gone.
And once I used to love you but now its just an obligation.
There is beauty in every rose,
but your thorns stand out for a fight.
love embroidered in war,
I have put on my fighting shield.
the voice that used to praise me transformed to curse me.
Yes I truly love you,
but that’s just an obligation.
