Promises broken, promises kept, promises spoken...never forget...


Power of a promise- words suspended like

icicles, glistening rainbow orbs projecting

artic visions, entombed forever in crystal

flutes, simultaneously sipping nectar

nuturing eternal trust between two beings...

           ~                       ~                    ~

Validity of a promise- reaching deep into the

pit of a scarred temple, weeping acid tears

upon tainted pillows brushed with sincere

intentions, lonely are the words locked in

eternal vaults, banished from worldly light...

       ~                         ~                       ~

Betrayal of a promise- shattered morsels

carelessly strewn throughout a kingdom,

an ancient ceremony thriving, relegating

mortal desires awaiting a frenzied destiny,

loyal in subservient bondage, never freed...

      ~                         ~                        ~

A lone teardrop

             A promise broken

                                A promise kept

                                                   Never forget ~

Filled with hope and beauty. I think people take for granted what promises are nowaday and that's sad. Profound piece.

And, the Lord knew He was the only one who keeps promises: so, He told us to say, "Lord willing, I will do this or that." Beautifully written, Zenith, and so true. ~~Bonnie Q

Hard to make, even harder to keep. But some always do keep their promises, and those we call friends. Good write.
