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.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
