"Life is but a walking shadow."

~Shakespeare (Macbeth)

I don't know how long this will last,
But I'll make you happy for as long as I can.
I promise I'll never hurt you on purpose,
And if I ever leave,
I've kept my promise that I can't stay.
I know it will always be this way -
I can't promise anything but this.
I can't make myself love you
Any more than I do.
If you ever wonder how I feel,
Just know that this is real.

The author's comments:
I thought about what someone who always left could promise someone else. Like, from Firefly Lane - Tully always left her boyfriends and never got married. What did she promise them? Nothing. I thought, If I ever got to be like that (never, never ever XD), I'd promise that I couldn't stay forever. Also, for some weird reason, everything good that I write, I come up with in the shower. I wonder why that is...
