I was something you wanted,
Until you did not want me,
Now I spend my days locked away in a cage

I recall when I was so small,
And you held me in your arms,
You called me yours

I was yours,
I was all you needed

We would walk for hours,
Until you stopped caring,
Now I pace the apartment, alone,
Until you finally notice,
And you tell me to go away,
To lie down,
To just forget everything,
And I don't understand how this is so easy for you

When I was yours,
When I was all you needed

But someone,
Will look into my eyes and see the treasure hidden beneath and not throw it away like you did

Like you did
