1.) We’ll be together until the earth grew its last flowers and we’ll know which star we came from. I guess you don’t like flowers because you knew how to strip forget-me-nots for their meaning. I guess you don’t believe in stars, I guess I was the only one who thought we belonged to the same one.
2.) I won’t leave, how could I? I’ll be here when you wake up. I’m not going anywhere. I lied. You couldn’t accept that I wasn’t truly over her, yet you declared love for me. I should’ve known better than to drag you with me. You should’ve known better than to trust me. I was made for this.
3.) Let’s name our first daughter Belle. I always loved that name. Okay, this promise isn’t broken. It’s still in effect, just maybe not with you. I’m sorry. It was a beautiful name, yeah?
4.) I’ll always love you. I didn’t realize at the moment, but that promise is hollow. Yes, I’ll always love you, but only from time to time. People change. You have changed. I have changed. We do these things like Autumn waving off Spring like it’ll never return. I’m sorry.
4.) I’ll always pick up when you call. I’m sorry, I thought I could, but I can’t. Why should I? To hear about him? Your days without me? How happy you are? I am happy for you, but I’d be happier not hearing about it. You never had your shit together, but you finally got it together without me. You don’t need me, so fuck this promise.
5.) I could never regret you. I don’t, but I kinda do. Really. You’ve changed me, I wonder who I could’ve been. That innocent young kid, I wonder what he could’ve been. That’s what I regret, I changed more than you did. A dead person holding onto rosy shades of who he could’ve been. I’m sorry.
