Plighting my Troth

I apologize

I always betray those I love

I hurt and I get hurt

I walk with those who do the same to me

To get my just desserts


Where will it all end?


If still we find our love

withstands all this hurt I cause

through the words I say

it will come as no surprise

that I apologize.


I need you still, you know

more than my own two eyes.
