your love was just lust

If a broken heart you’ve suffered do not hate your ex

For if you do hate them, your life will be vexed

For you never loved them, see

Because of how you feel now

You should be happy that they know, the boat they want to sail

That is true love, see

They’ve set you free to find someone more worthy of you and you of him

If you hate them, you never loved them

They were just a passing whim

A toy you weren’t ready to displace

This made you feel disgraced

So you think your feelings are just

Yet you were only filled with lust

You never loved them, see

You see it now, don’t you?

That particular love was never meant to be…
