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

Heart on the Bank


Skipping Stones1

Water worn surfaces smoother tonight

Promises of yesterday on wings flight

Cold is the water in the night spring

Crying in my heart for warmth to bring

Other hearts whipped and skipped so strong

Dancing upon ripples trailing till dawn

Still sink to the depth’s growing peaks

Remembering the words you did openly speak

You said you’d leave my heart on the bank

But no you cast it with the others, and it too sank
