You and I can never keep our promises by Anoud Alalshaikh

I told you, you and I can never keep our promises.

 

20 thousand marks you’ve left on me. 17 months of nothing but heartbreak.

You promised to stay with me as I promised to stay strong, You left on the 12th and I died everyday.

I told you, you and I can never keep our promises.

 

Love never hit me as tragedy, yet there it was – there you were. A bird flying across my chest bleeding stones that wrecked my heart.

And on the 14th I was still broken. Promised to fix me as I promised to let you go, You left on the 15th and I was holding on to a piece of nothing you once gave me.

I told you, you and I can never keep our promises.

 

Ice cold breeze and sand shaped glass, I walked alone in hopes of meeting you halfway. You never stepped closer so I turned my back, slowly walking away thinking maybe you’d come after me. But as I walked you ran to the other direction. So fast I could hardly catch a breath.

On the 16th I spent all my nights weeping. I knew it was all in my head, you never really cared about me. You would say you did but in your eyes, nothing but her, I could see.

 

Now on the 17th, I promised myself to move on. Carry myself along with the wind that blew away 23 candles and a page of hope and regret.

Maybe if I moved on you’d come back for me. You would make up for all the damage I’m left with. You would heal me, You’d fix me and I’d fix you back. Promise me and I’ll promise you back. We’d hold onto each other, do it all over. Ecstatic, we’d be – just as we were 514 days ago. Except now we both know that You and I can never keep our promises.
