she was just temporary

I’m wondering why I let you walk away that night.
Maybe because I never thought you’d leave my sight.
But you’re gone now, and you took all your light.
You’re just a vague memory I’ve lost to the stars.
No one could have guessed we ever would have taken it this far.
Now I’m sitting in the dark all alone,
Wishing you could find your way home.
You know we fucked it up, I guess it was just our luck,
We were never meant to be, we were merely an accident,
That benefited you and me.
We didn’t really fit together,
You only wanted this
because you didn’t want to be alone forever.
I was the first guy to show some affection that was real,
Then you told me you had feelings that you didn’t really feel.
This fake emotion made me tear,
As everything happened that I had come to fear.
You left without reason,
You left without warning,
Now thanks to you,
I’m alone every morning.
