Promises Are a Taste of Indulgence

March 9, 2011
You promised me you loved me

Promised me you did

Promised me your life

As if it were a bid

I believed in all those lies

The truth I thought was told

My heart I gave to you

My heart I gave to hold

I never ment to cry

Never ment to sulk

Never ment a word

Except those three words I spoke

You indulged in every weakness

Indulged in my very fear

Indulged in all those little

Hopeless crystal tears

You told me that you loved me

But please, tell me, was it true?

After all this feeling,

Was all so brand new

If it were not true,

Tell me, was it all fake?

I know you lied a lot,

But a number, give or take,

Would be nice
