i remember when your hyper-masculine cold shoulders
used to be warm
love turned to hate in a matter of days
it may be weird but i’m glad our eternity went to waste
thought it needed recycling
but my head mislabeled the bins
broken bottles and texts with models
cigarette butts and all the lapses of trust
that goes in the trash
maybe i’m being rash
but i truly believe i found the right place now

and your hoodie doesn’t give off the same heat anymore
but hey, that’s what blankets are for
redefining forever was the best thing i’ve done
but i wouldn’t stop all the mistakes i made when i thought you were the one
however reckless
losing my love gave me perspective
