It was so easy for you to smile,
As you silently stole my heart,
But never did you think to leave yours behind.
You were sly in your own strange way.
It was so easy for you to build a world of dreams,
To plant seeds of aspirations, and erect these walls,
From the tears and toil of my heart.
A heart that just went on bleeding.
It was so easy for you to hold my hand,
And make promises of security,
Promises that you would stand by my side forever.
Like a fool, I trusted you with all my heart.
It was so easy for you to say those words,
To whisper them softly in the night,
Without a thought about what they mean.
The three words which too can bring much pain.
It was so easy for you to change over time,
And look back and tell me I mean nothing,
To tell me that you deserve someone better,
To tell me that I expected too much by asking for your love.
It was so easy for you to walk away,
To leave me shattered, leave without a second thought.
It was so easy for you to move on with someone else,
When once you promised I would be the last.
It was always so easy to speak these empty words…
