P R O M I S E D --
How is it
that i am being shamed for the way i act towards people
even though when i trusted others, and
consistently let my guard down to help others,
i was left laying alone.
thinking of all the things you said about me,
i promised myself that i wouldn't lend my heart to someone who would shatter it.
i promised myself i would let myself heal, and stop lending my attention and care to the ones who ruined my life.
i promised myself something
and i never gave it to myself.
