Never Have I Ever

Never have I ever lost a love 
Except the one with whisky eyes
Whose future was as dead
As their ambitions

Never have I ever told a lie
Except for the times I was “fine”
While the truth shredded
My swollen heart

Never have I ever broken a promise
Except the promise I made
To love you when you were down
But you never got up

Never have I ever betrayed a trust
Except the trust you gave me
To stay within my boundaries
That you created for me

Never have I ever killed someone
Except for the version of myself
That you helped create
Making me passive

Never have I ever walked away
Except the time I had enough
And walked away from you
To find a better future
