Broken Promises Madeline Sullivan, '18 You trusted them They broke it. You turn around only to find a knife. There you go again, Building those walls. The walls that took so long So long to tear down. This time rebuilding Stronger than before. It will take twice as long to trust again Twice as long to be let in. It's not my fault you can’t get in I’m sorry I still hurt. You can go ask the one who did this, You can ask them why? You can ask them why they hurt me Why they hurt me even after they promised not to. Because if I knew I’d let you in. But maybe you would be another broken promise to me.
