"I promise to never hurt you"

These words are dangerous
For they fill you with hope
And start a fire
That could burn down
All the pain in the world
But leave you with nothing
But your broken mind
And a bleeding heart

You promised these words to me
The first night I explained to you
How I desperately loved you
But I was scared to love
Because of the memories
I have trapped in my head

Slowly, over time I fell
Harder than ever before
And it was only a matter of time
Before I would feel your hands
Smothering the air from my lungs
Until I forgot how to breathe

You Took My Breath Away From The Start (via asdfgraceehjkl)
