I used to be a dreamer,
Until I met you.
I used to hope, dream and believe,
Until you changed my point of view.
I hoped for a blissful tomorrow
Until you taught me, the world is only made of sorrow.
I believed in goodness of the heart,
Until You taught me, people are just playing a part.
I believed in acts of kindness,
Until you taught me it’s just my blindness.
At first I refused to believe it,
When you told me people aren’t worth it.
But when my humanity was put to test,
I couldn’t find any emotion in my chest,
Like they say, one rotten apple spoils the rest.
Slowly I lost the vision,
Trapped hopelessly in reality’s prison.
The world is now black and white,
Wherever I search, I fail to see a light.
I can see the faces without their masks,
But trusting someone is now quite a task.
I can see the world as it is now,
The magic of the world no longer makes me go – wow.
I used to have a heart of gold,
Now even my spirit feels old.
My heart is now of steel,
I struggle everyday just to feel.
I used to believe in love and it’s glory
Until you taught me it’s just a children’s story.
I miss the dreaming, for it gave me wings,
Now I twist and turn to cut off your strings.
When I met you,
I thought you will be my beam,
Ironically you took away my love and my dreams.
