My Love, My Life. Not Yours

I used to love the way you flipped your hair
It’s dark brown color shimmering against the sun
But now that we’ve parted ways, I regret the fact that I thought you were the one
But now you left me and took my love and my life

I used to love your dark brown eyes
I would get lost in them from time to time
But your eyes can be deceiving, for I have fell for your trap
But now you left me and took my love and my life

I used to love the way you laughed
I thought it could work magic sometimes
But now all I hear is your laugh mocking me, because I fell so hard for you
But now you left me and took my love and my life

I’ve now learned all of your ways
Though evil in some of them
But now I need to take a stand for myself, to show that I am stronger than words
Because it’s my love, my life. Not yours
