Discarded and Forgotten

You held me tightly like we were lovers of old

I was part of you; you chose me

Days spent in the sunshine of our existence

Memories created

I did my part; you were all I ever wanted

 

You held me tightly like we were lovers of old

I was important; you told me so

Hours together in a rhythm of living

It all made sense

I did my part; you were all I ever wanted

 

You held me tightly like we were lovers of old 

I was present; I never left

Something happened deep within you

I can see it now

I did my part; you were all I ever wanted

 

You held me tightly like we were lovers of old

What changed?; you once loved me

You stopped holding me like there was something wrong

I see it now

I did my part; you were all I ever wanted

 

You held me tightly like we were lovers of old

You tossed me away; discarded and forgotten

Like some street whore you were done with

I should have seen it

I did my part; you were all I ever wanted

 

You held me tightly like we were lovers of old

I deserved better; a fucking garbage can

Discarded and forgotten - no

I have seen it

I did my part; I moved on
