Dreaming of what used to be

Tell me your weaknesses I’ll tell you mine.
Hold them in your hands carefully

This trust is broken when hurtful words hit hard
Your cruel behavior purposely chosen to slash my heart and make me bleed

These truths I told you now used as weapons
Slowly eat away at the love I once had for you

You tear each bit without hesitation
Watching me crumble, while feeling satisfaction

Never thought the one I cared for could act this way
Don’t know how much longer I can hold on to this happy faded image of what once was
I grasp onto it with all my might

How can you look straight at me and hurt me so
After all that I have done
All that I continue to do
All that you say you want

I’m falling away faster than you care to notice
