• "I will never, ever hurt you. I promise."
    I remember saying those words.
    I remember breaking that promise.
    "I'm sorry."
    I remember that being said by me.
    I remember not meaning it.
    "I'm just scared, for you, for me... For us."
    I remember silently whispering that.
    And meaning something totally different.
    "I love you."
    I remember saying that.
    I remember regretting it.
    "I will always be there for you."
    I remember whispering that.
    I remember the one time I failed.
    "I wanna be your everything."
    I remember wanting that.
    I remember hating it.
    "I would do anything for you."
    I remember really meaning that.
    I remember you not wanting me to.
    "I'm just not in the right place for a relationship right now."
    I remember telling that with a sad face.
    I remember smiling and laughing with friends later.
    "I hate you."
    I remember thinking that.
    Every time you said...
    "I love you."
    You don't even believe that yourself.
    So stop trying to get me to believe it.
