I can't promise I won't hurt you.

My mouth and my brain don't think about others.

I know it seems like I am making excuses.

My heart doesn't trust people well.

I want to love and be loved as much as you.

My heart is always changing her mind.

I'm always hurting people.

I don't want to hurt anymore then I have to.

I swear I'm not making excuses.

I just don't want to hurt people anymore.

No more excuses I can promise you that.

Another good poem. I sort of have the same issue presented in this piece, so I can relate. Nice work.
