Promises Broken (Writing as Curiosity)

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.
