Broken Promises


Colors change to dark from blue
As yellow cracks the blackened hue
Rain evaporates the sky
Another chance, another lie.

Electricity fills the air
Shockingly, I just donít care
Before the first translucent drop
I realize Iím too deep to stop

Why is it so hard for you
To make a promise, see it through?
I told you when we tried again
Iíll see this to the bitter end

The thunder rolls, the wind it roars
On fateís path to your front door
Drops connect as puddles form
This is not your average storm

The light of dayís turned dark as night
Iím blinded til one flash of light
Your eyes lock mine in deadly fright
Weíve past the line from wrong to right

Why is it so hard for you
To make a promise, see it through?
I told you when we tried again
Iíll see this to the bitter end

The pouring rain erased my tracks
And any sign of an attack
Sunshine came back to the skies
And shed the light on all their lies

People come to pray and mourn
They wonder if my heart is torn
I never give them a reply
Bad things come to those who lie.

2. Thank you!

Iím glad you liked it! I certainly had a story in mind that I was telling, but the great thing about poetry is that can mean whatever makes sense and speaks to you.


Iíve posted a few others if you are interested. 🥰
