six forty-five

When it was six in the morning you didn't want me to go, so we smoked a cigarette quietly on the staircase leading up to that dingy apartment. When it was six fifteen, you said that you were sorry you had disappointed me, but I had already forgiven you. By six thirty you said to me : "Hiding somewhere under that kind heart of yours is some darkness that you've got all nice and bottled inside, and I can only hope that one day you might trust me enough to show me."

Might you acknowledge...

that he may have been quite truthful... perceptive?

And he apologized for disappointing you?

Is there a slight possibility he may also have been left with unfulfilled hopes/expectations?
