I am my own, You are your own

Because I loved you, I stopped focusing on myself

I made you my sun

I made you my world, my reason for living

I needed you to survive

You were the oxygen in my sad lungs

I felt like I knew what a drug user went through,

you were my toxic drug


For my next lover, I will know how to love right

I have realized I have the burning fire of a sun within me

We will have our own passions, likes, friends, life

We will be able to spend time apart

My happiness will not fully depend on you

Your happiness will not fully depend on me,

But we will be happiest with each other

I have my own world

And you have your own as well

And together we can make our own universe
