He promised to make love to me on
the beach as the sun went down.
He promised to get me drunk off
cheap wine and stagger with me as
we walked to our hotel room.
He promised me Paris.

He promised to build my dream
house with his own two hands.
He promised to marry me, and have
two children of our own.
He promised me Love.

He never made love to me on the
beach as the sun went down.
He never got me drunk off cheap
wine, or staggered down the street
with me to our hotel room.
I never saw Paris.

He never built my dream house.
He never married me, and we never
had two children of our own.
I never saw Love.

How sad for you, I hope that someday you find
Your truest love, not just someone that takes you for granted. However your poem has lots
of feeling, and is beautifully put together.

Oh my Lynn, how tragiacally sad, but oh how well written. I could feel your heartache very vividly with this piece.
