Teddy Bear

I once had a teddy bear
A stuffed with love teddy bear
In turn
I loved him back
Then he lost his eye
He lost part of himself
But I still loved him
I even wore my hair a certain way so that it covered part of me
Just for him
Then he lost his shirt
He felt naked
But I still loved him
I even wore my clothes a certain way so that I left part of myself uncovered too
Just for him
Then he lost his smile
He lost part of his personality
But I still loved him
I even changed the way I acted around everyone I knew
Just for him
Then he began to bust at the seems
He said he was so stuffed with love that he wanted to give some of it to me
But only if I gave him some in return
So I did
But right after I did
I lost him
I searched and searched but I couldn’t find him
Later I found that he took my love and left
I cried for my lost teddy bear
Then I cried for me
Because I wasn’t me anymore
I was his toy
I once had a teddy bear
A stuffed with something teddy bear
But it wasn’t love
It never was
