Always is a word that almost never should be used

However, with you, you break all the rules

Always you hurt me the second I trust you

Always I give you my vulnerability to you only have it crushed in your hand like a dying ember

Always you break my heart

Always like a fool I come running back for more

Always your promises never coming to fruition; lies seep from your mouth like water from the rock

Always I hope

Always I lie awake at night with only you on my mind

Always the smile you place upon my face is quickly replaced by the sorrowful expression of broken expectations

Always I hope

Always the ghost of our memories by my side, my nights haunted and my days shadowed

Always waiting, always longing, a thirst I cannot quench

Always I hope
