What to Believe

by LisaMay

When you said you’d love me forever,
why did I believe you?

When you said you had to ‘work late’,
why did I believe you?

When you were late night after night,
I said it didn’t matter.

When I said it didn’t matter,
why did you believe me?

When you hit me, then said you were sorry,
why did I believe you?

You said it wouldn’t happen again.
I don’t believe you.
Do you believe yourself?

Now it doesn’t matter at all.
Nothing does.

I learned not to care.
Do you believe me?

I don’t know what to believe.
