ONCE A LOVER, NOW A DEVIL by Richie Kharis

She told him "I hate you," but he took it as a joke

Her smile was deceiving and her voice was relieving

He only saw an angel with a figure like an eight

And never bothered to take note of her repeated joke


He told her, " Look, I love you—I'll take a blow for you."

But she looked at him smiling as if his words were untrue

Yes, I know, but I still hate you because that is what I do

Again, he waved, but this time those words came sinking through 

I see you working, defending me, and fighting for me

I never wanted this, but I knew the dark would come to be

Over the years, you kept thinking that I had agreed to this

But the fact is, I never loved your guts; I never loved you


His actions and wet eyes made her see him pure

He thought his childhood savior would be his future cure

But something can't be changed when it's already been done

Though he stood smiling, he was far gone for sure


Two years later, he was found wanting in the tavern

Playing hearts and breaking souls was his only mission 

He never cared about any feelings cause he had no reason 

was once a lover, but now a devil with no return
