Macho man

Don’t make promises to me that you never intend to keep

Please

Put my patchwork heart above your bravado

Please

Don’t comfort me for a minute with sweet nothings

That fade into nothing

Only leaving me bitter for days to come

Keep your words to yourself

Leave me in silent peace

You are not a true friend if you have left me in a worse state

than that in which you found me

Don’t use my pain as a stepping stone to fulfill

your fantasy of being my saviour just for a day

Paying away the entire currency of our friendship on such cheap selfishness.
