Promises Broken

Your promises given splintered
Under the wheels of my trust
The dust rising to the heavens
Riding eddies with the wind’s gust

Looking down from heaven’s clouds
How small you are with your black heart
Seeing the broken promises you gave me
Gives me strength for a new start

  1. Pain of jars of hearts.


  2. i like that a lot!…it’s great when people can create vivid/powerful impressions with few words. I love poetry. right now i’m focusing more on a video blog discussing the creative process/evolution of music culture from my perspective as a singer/songwriter. I find that i draw deeply on my college poetry classes for lyrics to my material. anyway, great writing and great blog title—keep it up!
