I didn’t know your love for me had an expiration date
I didn’t know it was soon
Now yours is all rotten
while mine sits in my room
full bloom

I didn’t know I would wake up to a day
where you suddenly didn’t care
or that all your promises and I-love-you’s
were temporary
not sealed in fate

I didn’t know all these things
but if I did
I would've done the same things as you

I would've let my flowers die
instead of buying fake ones so they last forever

now my love is permanently plastic
a cheap artificial reminder
that my eternity is just a moment in passing for you
