BUT YOU PROMISED...
by Sarah  L.

Staring out?
Pretending that you?re here?
Please won?t you come back?
Won?t you keep your promise?
And come back to me? 

You said you needed time?
So, I let you spread your wings?
And away you flew?
And you?re not back yet?

So I forgot to tell you?
While you were gone?
I met someone?
He was sweet?

Now you?re back and I don?t know?
What I am going to do?
I want you back but?
 you?ve got someone too?

You say you love her?
And I think I love him too?
But I?m in love with you?
Please tell me you don?t feel like that about her?

Now you say?
Give it time?
If you weren?t together?
You?d be with me?

What should I say to that?
I?m not okay?
I?m not second choice?
I don?t want to wait anymore?

I want you back now?
I want us to be together so much?
I?d do anything to have you be mine again?
But I don?t want you to be unhappy either?

Help me out here?
I don?t know what else to say?
I want you to drop off the earth completely?
Yet I want you to never leave my side?
Because otherwise, I SWEAR I?d absolutely die?

So I just sit by and watch you from afar?
Being happy with her?
And holding her the way?
You used to hold me?

Why do you do this to me?
Why can?t it just be the way it was?
When you loved me and I loved you?
But you say, "I don?t know if I?m coming back?"

And I say sadly, "But?you promised?"
