When I lost you

You were not beautiful
Or charming
Or anything in between
You took every pretty piece of me
Until everything became ugly to me
I won’t pretend you were perfect
You always had one too many, every time
The crazy sex or silly fights
Something always kept us up at night
You were violent for the most part
And so wrong for me
You took every good memory
And twisted them till I couldn’t breathe
Or sleep at night,
because I’d hear the song
That we’d always dance to
Whenever it came on
And even then I knew you loved
All the things I let you put me through

But I loved you
And maybe, in a way, I still do

When I lost you,
I lost a piece of myself, too
