secrets & roses

United States

everyone has secrets and sometimes they're hard to keep, but sometimes admitting them through poems and stories makes it a little better... at least for me

This is an updated piece of one I just recently published. I'm thinking of turning it into a song and the second stanza here would be the chorus

Promise?

I promised you perfection
A love that’d last forever
I promised you’d never have a broken heart
Then you went and broke mine instead
I promised you perfection
But now I realize I didn’t just promise you I’d try
I signed away my life

Made a deal with the devil
Made a deal I can't take back
Signed on the dotted line 
And I'm trapped for life
I promised you perfection 
While cursing myself to a life of destruction
