Broken Promises

Broken Promises

A Poem by LightForMyShadow

Promises were broken fast.


Expected years were meant to last.


You let me down and now I wonder.


You kept me here left to ponder.


Was everything just my fault?


It was my world that came to halt.


I understand lifes not fair.


But you don't help me, you just stare.


You watch me as I start to crash.


Enjoying my pain like your swimming in cash.


Take, take, take is all you do.


If I could I would sue.


I drown in the bottles that remain.


Let me rise above your tangled chains.


You walked away like the reckless mother at a park.


Maybe one day you will understand this hurtful mark.
