Should Never Promised Me - A Poem

Updated on July 7, 2017
Source

Write down love,

Into lines worth to read,

Sometimes only brought the longing farther,

To the dream,

I'm not usually allowing myself to go.

Because at the end;

The pain usually growing,

And then sadness consuming.

Knowing that my own hope had fooling me...

Source

Not just this once;

I lost,

From the cruelty of longing.

Stood at bay

Helpless even only for crying

Knowing your boat already sinking deep,

Killing yourself in it,

And mine in the process

Source

If you don't want a life...

Should never promised me one!

    Ahorseback: You help me evolved. In fact many Hubbers here help me evolved by allowed me to read and enjoying their works. This is a wonderful journey to be able to share my works which usually only hidden inside my books and celebrating it with others. Also to meet many friends, and people that I respecting so much like you, Dad. Thank you for your kind words and company. Hug back! ^^

    lol. Size does not matter. Being small give me several advantage. As single lady who was live in the middle of Borneo jungle I had to learned several tricks to make sure I always come back home in one piece. But I must admit the best trick I have is to cover my whole face and wearing very lose garment. Surely will scared people away, even in Indonesia. The other trick is to used 'puss in the boots' eyes trick and captived someone to do the dirty work for me. it's work all the time! lol

    It is better to express hopelessness than to keep it one's bosom. Poetry is so helpful and even beautiful in such circumstances. Thanks for sharing.

    What a strong message in verse. It conveys a deep pain of disappointment; of being misled enough to bet your whole future on one thing then losing it. Very powerful, Freya...Applause! WB

    Lol.

    "He promised me life but he doesn't want one. What should I feel? That's cruel isn't it?"

    That's the essence of the poem. about woman whose in love with depressed guy. Not my story of course but possible to happen in everybody's life.

    So, may I take you down now? LOL. I have blue belt in karate. not good enough but enough if only for kicking some butt. I helplessly need sparring partner lately. hwahahaha...
