Unkept Promises

Updated on July 10, 2014

The forest is dark here.

Trees are haunting me.

The sky is clouded with pain.

She told me she would be here.

She told me to be patient,

but she wouldn't be late.

Her lies have stolen me before.

Yet here I am,

believing one more.

The ground is becoming cold .

The night is wrapping me in a cloak.

I feel the eerie air flow around me now.

I should have never come here.

I should have never believed her.

Those staggering words,

she left them in the air.

She promised me.

Never again.

She is late now.

But it's to late for me to leave.

The night has stolen me.

Left me falling to my knees.

If you find me here,

know that it was for you.

You left me waiting here,

but my promise was true.
