Taken for Granted


She laughs when you make mistakes, and cries when you ache.
She tells you silly things, and loves when you sing.

So weird and funny, but it's true.
She could make you smile when you're blue.
No matter what people say or do, she'll always stand beside you.

But, do you know what the sad part is?
You never noticed any of those things.
You took her for granted, and thought that is was okay, because she was easy to please.
No chocolates, or roses. No special dates.
But that didn't matter, right? Because you promised to hold her forever.

Sweet words that were left unspoken.
Romantic moments that never happened.
But holding her hand had always seemed liked the perfect scene- to you anyways.

She laughed when you made mistakes, and cried when you ached.
She told you silly things, and loved it when you sang.

So weird and funny, but it was true.
She had fallen so deeply in love with you.
No matter what people said or did, she would have forever been with you.

But, you used her as a pawn, and treated her like shit.
She never deserved how you treated her, she thought you would have changed, but you never did.
She moved on, left you for good.

You tried to get her back, but she rejected you. And that's when you knew, you fucked up and lost your girl.
