Promises Broken (By Curiosity)

PROMISES BROKEN

You said that you would always love me.

Don’t you remember? By the cheesy romance

section at Barnes&Noble, you pulled me

to the side and whispered the sweet nothing.

You said that you would always be here.

Don’t you remember? You promised to be

near when my inspiration dried and I woke

to cold sweats and soaked tank tops.

You said that you would never leave me.

Don’t you remember? At Gate 142 on that

rainy day when you rushed a goodbye kiss

upon my lips, then ran to catch your flight.

You said that you would never give up.

Don’t you remember? You made me swear

to flush my colorful depression down

the toilet and fight for our love.

You said that you would never cheat on me.

Don’t you remember? But you’re probably

cuddled up with some other man right now,

manifesting into his dirtiest fantasies, I bet.
