I promise not to care for you.
When your pained by the evils that call this world home, I won’t even notice.
and If you decide to gift a gentleman with your heart, i’ll be left unaffected.
Whether you pass or fail the many tests that God puts before you will be none of my concern.
Because I promise not to care for you.
I promise not to let you enter my thoughts.
A future of you and I happily together will never be imagined.
What you are doing and who you are doing it with will never cross my mind.
The thought of how you’ll change my life will never reside in my head.
Because I promise not to let you enter my thoughts.
I promise not to chase you.
If you decide to walk out of my life, I won’t try to stop you.
The mere thought of begging you to honor your promise of forever is so far-fetched, that I know it won’t enter into my way of thinking.
Your absence will not move me to ask for your return.
Because I promise to not chase you!
And above all else, I promise not to fall in love with you.
I won’t allow the attraction I have to your mind to warp my heart into believing your the one I need.
Your aura won’t force me into conversations with myself, where I try to convince me that I am merely infatuated with you.
The ability to grow extremely fond of you is something that I will never possess,
because I promise not to fall in love with you.
I promise, I promise.
If only I could have kept that PROMISE.
