promises made, promises broken

1. we’ll talk later.
yes, we will but you
won’t initiate the conversation.
i will.

2. we’ll spend time together.
chance meeting on a bus, yes-
deliberately planned meetings?
no way.

3. i’ll call you.
don’t spend too long
waiting for me to call.
it’ll never happen, you know.

4. i’m always here.
you say this now but
someone or something will come along.
for you, that us.

5. i won’t call again.
this is an easy one
to make.
it’s even easier to keep.
