I made you

a promise.

But I don't know

if I can keep to it.

I'm weak,

I know.

I can feel

your raging disappointment.

Sorry to be me.

Haha, and you called me perfect.

Regretting that line?

Because I regret hearing it.

It only makes me

hurt worse inside.

Knowing that I failed you.

I can feel

my breath drag

into my body in raggedy gasps

and feel my heart ache

worse and worse

as it pumps,

as it expands.

You made me hurt,

yeah, that's true.

But huney,

you never hurt me worse

than when you said

that I'd never see you again.

You cut me deep,

and the blood still comes.

You made me a promise,

why am I the only one holding to it?
