Do you remember the night we promised forever?

Words pouring from our lips

Our breath rushing out of our lungs as we clung to each syllable

Hoping we were meant for one another.

Small kisses stolen between each sweet lie we told ourselves

One for fate, one for fantasized love

One for promises we could never hope to keep.

And now here we are

Worlds apart, not sure where to go.

In time I know you’ll move on

But where will I be?

Stuck in that night of bitter memories.

Haunted by images of you, by your smell

The way your hands felt on my waist

The softness of your voice in my ear

Whispers of those abandoned promises echoing through my mind

Because even though it starts out with two people,

So sure and so full of dreams,

It ends with one person holding a broken heart.

No one is meant to last

And I, my darling, am the one who will hold these painful promises

Forever.
