He Did Promise Me



Did he beg you, with all his heart, for your trust?
Did he ask you, with all his heart, to have faith?
Did he hold your hands tightly when he swore those promises?

Did he promise you that everything will get better, that he is home now?
Did he promise you that he does exist for you and won’t ever make you feel alone?
Did he promise you that all he needs is time and chance and he won’t mess around anymore?
Did he promise you that he would do anything to make you happy for now and for good?
Did he promise you that he would take care of your heart more and nothing can get worse?
Did he promise you that he would bear your soul as he was kneeling on the floor?

And what would you hold onto when he broke all of those promises?
For he could not even remember making them when the morning comes.
For he was too drunk to remember it all.

And here you are, barely holding onto those drunken promises,
All alone, feeling hollow, numb, no one’s there to caress,
As you weep and try to mend all of your bruises,
Cry yourself to sleep within memories.

And even through it all, you would still choose to stand till the end of the road,
All alone, waiting for him to come home and keep his drunken words.
