BROKEN PROMISES

Years ago you promised~

Now you promise some more~

Should I buy your promises? ~

My belief system is scorned!

Many moons ago you assured me~

Three years have gone through the door~

I walk the fence~

With weakening conviction as others you deplore!

You guaranteed to me~

As you swore on the Holy Bible~

And upon your mothers grave~

That your dedication was real~

I wonder can this relationship be saved?

You gave your word~

Forked tongue as it came out~

What should I believe? ~

I will not lie, I have my doubts!

You pledged to me your love~

I wonder? ~

Do you know what love is about? ~

Do you know what devotion is? ~

I pray to GOD you are not a louse!

It was an agreement you made with me~

That lasted past intended thrice years~

My trust wanes~

But still you scoundrel~

I love you my Dear.

It was an oath you pledged to me~

Yet I see nothing to have spurred faith in thee~

Nothing has come about~

My fingers are naked~

No rings mark the spot!

You had vowed to me~

So I blind am led~

Are they intentions or lies? ~

I have eaten almost everything you have fed!

Years ago you promised~

Now you promise some more~

Should I buy your promises? ~

My belief system is scorned!

Such a sad poem but I know people who have suffered from such a relationship. It is very draining and hurts. You wrote this so well!

Lisa, what a sweet beautiful poem... I love it so much. But there is a weird thing... all the ads beside your hub are all about Obama.... This is a poem about betrayal and pledges not kept... promises not followed up... LOL.

Sorry for saying this. Obviously Google or whoever just loves your writing. Including me. :)

I apologize for not following you until today. I see you all over Facebook and always meant to follow but somehow never quite managed that simple task. Well I am glad today was the day; you write beautifully and I happen to greatly admire poets.

Sadly, these things happen so many times. Well done, for it shows all those self doubts regarding promises.
