Duvet wrinkled around her body
Watching her sleep away

You made a choice not to keep me

My heart has been angry at you
Your betrayal killed my soul when you left with her
Even after i told you i was pregnant
I cried tears that never seemed to end
I hated every memory of us
If i could wipe away your kisses from my lips
