Aside

promises

i promise to hurt you
i’ve done it a million times
i’ve hurt you with broken promises
some promises made with a look
that i didn’t even know were promises
some promises made with a touch
that i was never able to keep
some promises made with a word
that were lies but felt like hope
i’ll be right back
it’ll be okay
i’ll never hurt you
i’ve broken them all
so let me promise to hurt you
it is a promise i will keep

i’ve seen pain in your eyes
and nothing has ever hurt me more

your eyes are the windows to my soul
so with this promise to hurt you
comes another one
i promise to face it
i will never shut my eyes to your pain
i may never understand your pain
but i have always seen it
that will not change
you need not shout
you need not scream
you need not hide
this is not an apology
this is a promise

if i cannot look you in the eye
i will have surrendered my soul
