Used To
You don’t smile anymore,
Not like you used to.
You don’t laugh anymore,
Not like you used to.

You’re old and tired,
And the world is bland,
Devoid of your colours,
Devoid of your dreams.

You look in the mirror
But she doesn’t look like you.
And it’s been years
Since you truly smiled.

Now you realise,
The best parts of you are stuck in the past,
Buried in moments you wished would last,
But you’re sinking in this future,
And you’re sinking fast.

It hurts so much,
Because everyday you’re reminded that
All you are now is just a hollow shell
Of who you used to be.
