Promises Promises

Promises Promises

A Poem by McEltic

If a promise understood the spoken word
would it ignore the roar of devotion's cheer
or disregard the sight of a despondent tear
Better... it bond the two hearts
than falsify its token pledge
because its grasp
just might quell that offensive urge
and thus

defend the heart from a tormentor's dirge
the inconsiderate tongue that swells them
Key words mistyped in letters dear
where finger strokes and angry thoughts combine
so that sadly

one flawed phrase inclements
and forever storms our minds
If promises could interlace with beating hearts
tears could find defence from poison darts

Your overall message is a bit too cryptic for me to follow, but I'm catching a bit of resentment toward promises, a clever thing to choose to personify & I enjoy your inventiveness in doing that. I never make promises & I disregard promises that people make becuz it's all BS to me. We cannot control our lives to the extent that we humans have any right to be making promises. I think this is the gist of your lyrical satirical rant. But I could be very wrong about that! *wink! wink!* Happy Easter to you & your loved ones (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
