|Excellent write...so very emotionallly charged...but, believe it or not, some promises...from the right people...are fulfilled no matter the cost...so never give up hope that there is still some innocence, some purity in this tired old world...
May only the brightest of light shine upon you, M'Lady,

|So true about this. People shouldn't make promises that they cannot keep. It would be a lie.

|It's very true promises not keep
can only break a heart!
The best thing is never make promises
You know deep in your heart you can't keep
Because it will destroy that persons heart!!
Excellent chosen words and beautifully conveyed
And beautifully written!
Love Peace and hugssss...Morning Star

|Oh my, four years with a lass who claimed to only ever be faithful to the man she loved. Four years of flying to NY, then to find out on a poetry site, she had loved another all along, and well you can guess, but last Xmas with her over there I kinda knew, least she has a great new tv, duvets, money to free her from debts. But I hear this is the American way.
Last time I take a lass at face value, even if she claims to be a perfect catholic...LOL, how daft am I

|I agree with Barbara....we must be careful what we promise. I have always maintained the attitude that I will not promise unless I know I can deliver. It helps when one is able to maintain this form of thinking. Great writer, very heartfelt indeed!

|Staci, you are repeating what I've always said, "Be careful what you promise because if you can't keep that promise someone heart will be hurt." I, in fact, wrote wrote a short story about broken promises...broken promises lives in one's mind forever. An excellent write.|

|You make some very valid points in your verses here, Staci. You are right. Broken promises leave open wounds that never truly heal. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,
|Reviewed by Rose Rideout
|Yes indeed Staci, broken promises can tear apart a heart and therefore shouldn't be made so easily, as Christine says one should really think before making a promise, but do remember dear they are always broken some are made from the heart and are carried out.

|Broken promises can hurt,, one should think before they promise.|

|Broken promises - probably something we've all sadly experienced at times in our lives - and how shattering they can be.|
|Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader)
|On the whole, you're probably right about promises easily made, but difficult to maintain . . .|

|you must have had much experience with broken promises-it reminds me of the movie, "Radio Flyer" in which Tom Hanks' character tells his boys that the most important words you'll ever say are "I Promise"|
