To say goodbye,
It's not the hardest word.
My honesty is all but broken,
And I look away with eyes so blue,
I cannot say with these tears I cry.

To say sorry,
It's not the hardest word.
My ignorance only leaves you shattered,
And I know in my heart so black,
I should apologise but I'd rather fly.

To say no,
It's not the hardest word.
My addiction drives you insane,
And I feel that my ears bleed so red,
As I struggle to answer your one question: why?

Good rhyme pattern,I have seen so many that used rhymed couplets like children's nursery stuff and I have critiqued only a few. You and I share a skill at blank or slant rhyme. Glad to see that.
About the scheme, it was definitely original and well-constructed. Your tone is rather sarcastic though, especially when you stipulate that you would prefer to leave rather than to surrender; but who knows? Maybe many people are that way nowadays?
You did one more thing that i liked: you looked at the three words that may really be hard to say. I often hear that Sorry seems so hard to say. Very interesting material. Congratulations and thank you for writing a change.

I absolutely love this. This is probably the best thing you've written in a few days. The rhyme and rhythm don't sound forced at all, and the overall syntax is just great! ^_^ Great topic. It really feels like your pulling from experience, and real emotion here. It feels like your showing us yourself.
