Broken Promises

July 30, 2008
By Kimberly Le, South Plainfield, NJ

Broken promises and lies,
Tears falling from her eyes.
He says one thing but he does another
He makes her feel like she's a burden on his shoulders.
He sits down at the piano as he writes her a song
His way of saying, "I'm sorry, I was wrong."
But she no longer wants to hear his apology,
"How many times have I tossed and turned without a wink of sleep?
How many nights did you fill my head with a fairy tale fantasy...
Of what was supposed to be just you and me?
So where did the other girls come into play?
Give me a reason why I should stay?"
With that last word, she walked out the door
And she promised herself, she won't run back anymore.
