When In Doubt

Promises are made to be kept
To show our love and respect
Dont promise if you cannot keep it
It hurts and does not pay

We both made promises
To forever hold
That we would love forever
And never let go.

We would travel the world over
No matter the weather
That you would be strong
Protect me forever

You said you loved me
And would never go
That we would stay together
Work it out

I have kept my promises
I love you and omly you
I gave you my all
Im giving you my care

Your breaking your promises
You want to be free
Because I cant do one thing for you
Instead of holding on, your letting go.

I know now it will be the end
Your leaving on a whim
I will never see you again
Just a broken heart and promise.

Dont promise me a house
Dont promise me a ring
Dont promise to love me forever
Dont promise me your vows.

I dont need any of it
If I dont have you
Your the center of my attention
Not promises that are not true.

Together we no longer will be
No dreams of you and I
Our love is broken
No longer to be.

Broken promises

Promises are easy to make
They're also very easy to break
You make a promise you plan to fulfill
You start out good; you know the drill

After awhile things went south
Now you will not open your mouth
The birth of he
Was the death of me
I am no longer important to you
You have much better things to do

But i am still your family
Do you care that you've hurten me?
I trusted you like i did no other
Even though you aren't, your still my brother
I just hope one day you see
How much this broken promise affected me.

My Promise


My blood may not be yours

We were not born from the same

Yet you are ever so close to me


I love you as a friend and relative

You’ve helped my darkness be slain

And been there for me like always


I shall always be here for you

No matter what you go through

I shall be by your side always


This is my promise to you, one I shall keep

I shall love you always through everything

Come hell or high water, I’ll be here

Fading Away

2010-2012 Poems


Piercing pain.
Raining inside.
I travel 1/8th of the world
Twice a month,
Apart from my work-
Just to be with you.

But even if we’re streets apart
It feels you’re still some miles away:
Busy, disconnected,
Always somewhere, detached,
Even when you’re here.

We said we will try
Where is “we”?
You asked me: “Be here with me.”
Rain or shine;Sickness and in health;
I am here. Always.
Where are you?

“Next time is coming soon baby”
That was nearly a year ago.
Time is so precious
For you and your work-
“Next time” never came by.
It’s not the waiting baby
Not even going there
It’s your promise, your words
The trusting and hoping
Should I stop believing? 

Three knives in my heart:
Time -is not on our side;
Distance -we’re worlds apart;
I can deal with that…
But the worst part is
You and I -becoming strangers at heart.

four white stallions
galloped across the

In tow a lovely lady
in a make-believe

The day was filled  
with promise
Promises for a better

Suddenly the horses
became annoyed
Refusing to yield  
to the lovely lady
holding the reins.

Her task at hand,  
corral their energies
And so she did.

Sometimes we must do things we don't really want to...But decisions must be made.
