Now.

While we were dating he used to beat me at video games
Now he just beats me… like it’s a game

 

While we were dating, he used to hit on me just so my friends would be jealous
Now, he just hits me so I’ll be jealous of my friends

 

While we were dating, we used to go to the boxing centre at Rowe park
Now, I’m the center of all his punches

 

While we were dating we used to lie on the balcony and stare at the stars
Now, I get so dizzy and see stars whenever he lies to me

 

While we were dating we used to beg each other to keep quiet for a moment
Now, there are few moments that are not quiet between us

 

While we were dating, we used to take the most perfect pictures together
Now, the last perfect frame that hung on wall was hurled at me two days ago

 

While we were dating, we used to share everything we had
Now? Well now, he’s shared some venereal diseases with me. So yeah…

 

While we were dating, he would wink and tell me some of my dresses were ‘provocative’
Now, he always says ‘You’re provoking me’, just before he slaps me

 

While we were dating, he always paid the bills every time we went out
Now, I go out every day so I can pay the bills

 

While we were dating, he used to call me a ‘fashion killa’
Now, it’s probably his fashion to whisper to himself ‘kill her’

 

While we were dating I never asked the right questions
Now, I never question him because he’s always right

 

While we were dating I avoided talking to my mom about him because of her reservations
Now, I still avoid her, but because of the scars on my skin and the swell in my head

 

While we were dating, I quieted the little voice in my head that didn’t seem right
Now, I’m as quiet as that voice was and it does not seem right

 

While we were dating, I never talked to God about the relationship
Now, that’s all I cry to Him about.
