last night

last night

you came to me

your mouth spewing

endless lies and unforgivable apologies


last night

you came to me

with those daring three words


how you tried so hard

but i'm not that easy


last night

you came to me

tears in your eyes

red stains on your cheeks

you told me a story

of how you've been hurt

how you don't want to be hurt

but baby

you should know by now 

this is how it works


last night

you came to me

expecting me to believe 

your sweet little sob story

your ruthless apologies

echo in my mind

but not this time

you crossed the line


last night 

you came to me

and i watched you

in all of your pathetic misery

as i said to you

apologies just aren't for me
