    Did I let go of my old self
    Or did she abandon me?

    I lost a part of me, maybe a lot
    In the phase, maybe a voyage
    Of being clueless what love was
    To discerning what it was not
    If the universe granted a boon
    To this parched heart of mine
    I would ask for myself, my old self
    That part of me I lost in the days of yore

    The old me did not want
    To own anything but her identity
    She never wanted to fall in love
    Stayed in tune with her zeal
    Had so much confidence
    That she will win over this world
    Wasn't afraid of her fellow human

    She loved butterflies until
    Love caged them inside her
    She loved rain until
    Love showered them through her eyes
    She loved music until
    Love made her heart moan
    She loved love until
    Love ruined everything she loved

    Did I let go of my old self
    Or did she abandon me?
    Was she afraid of the love I killed
    Or did love kill her?

    The butterflies are gone
    But my stomach still hurts
    Those poor flies might have
    Shanghaied that old me in redress
    Maybe if I embrace Ms. Love
    She will release my old self
    Maybe love isn't that cruel

    Love may not be a hero in disguise
    But it's humans who make her a villain
