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.

A very expressive write here.
This is like a rant. I enjoyed this.
You have wonderful rhyme scheme as well.
