Used to

I used to love the moon at night
Now it just some overt reminder
There are other stars in the sky

I used to wade into the waters
Before water drowned me in tears
Now I just watch it all from afar

I’ve become estranged to believing
At least the kind I used to trust in
Wordless, truth spoke in the eyes

I used to love all beautiful things
Old, broken or misused by others
Long before my whole life changed

I used to be honest down to my bones
But now- I can’t tell if I’ll love a lie
That smiles and whispers: I’m alone

I used to respect and know myself
Before getting used to … loving hell
