Promises Made...



Yesterday's goals... dim memories.
Dark saddened eyes, blurring with tears.
Painful scars borne; Love's history.
Futures crumble when doubt appears.

No brightly lit hope envisioned,
When following after harsh words.
Hurt soul splits in twain, partitioned.
Swooned by appeal... when numbness lured.

Apologies made, never bought.
Price paid turned out far too costly.
Though never known what would be wrought...
Must walk into the night softly.

One wish... only to be released.
Granted... now receive this token.
Words written in rhyme, love's deceased.
When promises made...were broken.

Dude, you rock! Excellent slice of your inner night. Likes me much it does.

Personal note, been there myself so I know how it feels

I have been down this road before, my friend. But there are still others leading out of despair. Do not lose hope!

Chris, there's nothing I can say that will make you feel any better, I know, I've been there. I will say this poem cuts right to the heart, though. Wonderful, as always.

Christopher, this is an exceptionally written piece of poetry my friend. Your sadness and pain both ring loud and clear. From pain and dispear, you have created art.

I want to thank you all for your kind responses...both to the poem and to me. I am once again humbled by the caring of the wonderful people here! Life has been, well tough, for lack of a better word to describe without pennig a novel and I really do appreciate and value each and every one of your responses.

"...walk into the night softly".....aaahhh, Christopher, this piece nearly bleeds emotional pain. I can actually see it - very very exquisite piece here - although exquisite might seem the wrong word....intensely exquisite maybe. But as always, like DE says, you rock. Thanks for opening up a bit.
I still love that line you used - powerful imagery.

I read it again, and say to heck with that LINE, the whole stanza made it happen for me! Wow - but that last line tied the knot....fabulous read Chris - and chin up in all you're going through.
