Empty promises

Lying words

This is what you've

Given me

This is what you have


These horrible attributes

Of your swear

I should leave

Should run away

Should never come back

I just wish I could

You've hurt me

Not only with words, but physically

Delirious, I think of the bruises

As small tokens, marks of your love

The empty promises are ways of keeping

My heart safe

My heart would be safe from

The comfort of things that might disappear

Keep me from hurting

When that actually occurs

My heart would be safe

Of ever thinking happily ever after's

Really happen.

So, I don't hate you

In a way I'm grateful

You saved me

From the false comfort

Of happiness.
