Hold On: A Poem About Commitment

Updated on December 14, 2011

Hold On

Hold on
I know where this is going
Please not another word
Hold on

Fifty percent of marriages
End in divorce
Most relationships will
Never reach marriage

No point in working
Up to
A horse
And carriage

Pardon my pessimistic
View on commitment
Love is vital
Commitment is decision

I compare their
Words of wisdom
To financial advice
From a bum

They live under
Burned bridges
They sleep with
The pigeons

A shame to be in
That predicament
Without anyone
Significant

There is no love
Aside from trust
We need to take
Some time for us

Hold on

Will you call other
Guys when
I’m not
Around?

Will I get in touch
With random women
When you’re
Out of town?

If the answer
Is yes to
Any of the above
That isn’t love

If I’m always
Gone
While you’re
Home alone

If you say
You trust me
Then look
Through my phone

That isn’t love
Not love to me
Just enjoy
My company

No cards
No strings
No hearts
No rings

No love bugs
No kissing birds
Not even another
Word

Hold on

      Oh Lord. I have been struggling with my answer to the man I live with for a long time. This poem is....well...not making my decision easier, but I do understand what you mean. I love it by the way.

      I can't believe you were hiding that handsome face of yours behind a "tie" and the the "back of your head"...lol

      Love is all that matters and trust is the binder. How can I disagree with you? Wonderful poem, wonderful writing.
