You Promised Me Forever

My Broken Heart

You promised me forever
as if you had any control
over your tomorrows.


Well forever is here,
and you are long gone.


You said you loved me
then changed your mind.


You lied to me; 
I should've known
you'd leave me here.


I see you in pictures
and remember what we had.


Your laugh echoes
in my memory,
your smile engraved
in my thoughts.


I feel you forget me
and wonder what
could have been.


I wish I was
something you missed.
