Yesterday's Promise...

Yesterday's Promise...

A Poem by Jvonne

Written in collaboration with Patient Poet (Yos)


I found a crack in your wall this morning,

The high wall you built around your bleeding heart

You left it there for me to look through.

I found you sitting in a corner,

Waiting to spread your words,

Like red roses on white satin sheets…


Take me into your heart,

Open the windows to your soul,

Let me into your shadowy ruins

Allow me to alter your sky…

To walk through the corridors of your mind

Catching your thoughts and setting them free


I’m longing for your gentle touch

Would you let me lead the dance?

A slow romantic triple meter Waltz

May I drown in your sweet sent once more?


Do you hear me, when I call?

Lost in translation, so far apart…

Do you feel me, when touch?

A stranger you have become

Show me the way back to you...

Lead me like before in our special dance

Take back the magic that once was.

The romance that once was us…


I watch as you take flight

Your slim body, free of restrictions

Making small cycles around my wounds

I close my eyes to remember

Beautiful days gone by

Just before dark clouds covered our sky.


As we lay on that old familiar couch

Holding you in my arms like so many times before…

Do you still hear my heart beating?

Could you truly understand?

Reflections, memories…

All a blend of pink and white spots in your eyes.


And I realize, you’re no longer mine…

The to and fro of this piece...
gets to the reader...
the questioning...throughout the verse...
gives a momentary pause...
just long enough to exceed pass again...
and ends relatively --- as it started...
