Liar

She is angry with me, again.
‘Why do you do it?’ she rants. ‘Don’t you want this to work? Don’t you want to settle down, start a family?’
I hang my head, shamefaced.
‘It won’t happen again, I swear it.’ My hand is on my heart.
But I am lying.
To her and, much worse, to myself.
Because deep down I know I am too obdurate to change.
I’ll always be bad.
