all the things he said

When he said it wouldn’t hurt
     and it did 
I thought I must be doing something wrong 

When he said I would like it
     and I didn’t 
I thought I must not be normal 

When he said it had to be our secret
     and I never told anyone 
I never realized what that silence would cost

When he said he really liked me
     and then hurt me 
I thought people who liked me would always hurt me 

When he said it would get better
     and it didn’t 
I thought I was terribly malformed 

When he said someday I’d understand
     and I never did 
I was sure I was mentally unbalanced 

My whole life has been spent trying to connect reality
     to the things he said 
But now I realize there is no connection and never was 

I just wish I could clear my thoughts
     of all the things he said
