Take Back your Promises

Take Back your Promises

A Poem by Mira ThePoetess
"

You've changed my own features, made me live your lie, now take back all those promises you once made, and let me find myself.

"



Take Back your Promises


Alone in the stillness of the night
Staring at my face gazing back at me
Through the mirror… through the hazy light
I see a shadow of the woman I used to be…

I watch the wasted days of my life
Shoving off in my own eyes
Cold memories cut like a knife
As sharp as your chilling lies...

My love relentlessly misused
Fading in the grayness of your apathy
My dreams savagely abused
Shrilling… wailing for empathy

There are no more chances I want to take
No more oceans for us to sail
Making me believe anything was my mistake
My fault when anything should fail

There are no more roads for us to walk
No prospect for us to succeed
My heart you willfully broke
A miracle is what we’ll need

I won’t drown in my illusions anymore
Time has come to see the plain truth
Thinking it could ever be like before
Is wasting away my life and youth

You’ve put me on the run for quite so long 
Living in your deceiving delusion
Swaying in those foggy places amid right and wrong
I’ve reached nothing but loss and confusion

Astray… rolling in your circle in the sand
I’m always back to the point of start
I won’t search for reasons to understand
Why we are ending so far apart

You left me nothing but a heartache
And a heap of dreams thrown aside
So take back all the promises you’re yet to make
And give me back my wounded pride… ©

Strong work, emotion brilliantly expressed in this piece. Heartfelt words, that demand an honest reading of it, as well as an earnest understanding.
You've maintained your rhyme scheme well without losing the meaning in your message - sometimes that is a flaw among the writers of this site - so well done on managing to maintain the thread and power of your message throughout.
It has the feeling of a pride that has begun to remember itself, and to recognize that it deserved more than what it got.
Well written, Mira. Keep up the good work.

Thank you Jerry
A powerful and haunting piece. I especially like the second stanza as she finally realizes the time she has lost in her quest for love, unfortunately something that you can never reclaim due to the ravages of time. Brilliant work.

Brings to mind a woman talking to her eating disorder. Pretty heavy stuff. Good work.

usually I find music distracting. This time, however, the music was an integral part of the experience.

If I was seeking a piece to defy and surpass the term perfection, I most assuredly found it in the reading of this piece. There are way too many lines that stood out to me to quote, but you have impressed me beyond all scope of anything I have read thus far. Perhaps it is because I can relate, and yet so much beyond that--your ability to pen is stunning to state the least! Congratulations on the mastering of your craft in this brilliant piece!
