I Promise...

I Promise...

A Poem by Sanjh
"

A promise to keep.

"
I'll be here,
I promised...

When you left me,
on this lonely path.
Left with just darkness,
And love's deadly wraith...

I tried to turn around and return,
from where I once started.
Kept running in the dark,
everyone thought I'm retarded...

I'll be here,
I promised...

I tried to free myself,
from each and every thought of you.
But the more I thought,
the deeper my love grew...

I cried, I shouted,
Thinking you might hear.
But no one ever heard me,
I lived in shadows of my tears...

I'm still here,
as I promised...

I'm still waiting for you,
from where you left long ago...
But you might not recognize me,
for who am i now? Even I don't know...

But I'm still here,
everyday my love still grows.
You are far away from me,
And I just want you to know:

I'll always be here,
I promise once more...

"I tried to turn around and return,
from where I once started.

I love this poem but this one stanza makes me feel thrown off.
Like, the use of the word "retarded" is just too abrupt for me and out of place.

Personally I would try something a little more like:
"I tried to turn around and return,
from where I once started.
Kept running in the dark,
They thought my common sense had departed."

This is just constructive criticism! You're under no obligation to change your poem or even care about what I've said. It is a very good write! Thank you for sharing :)

A sad and beautiful poem. I could feel the emotion and need to find places that are lost. True love will never leave us. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

You are welcome.
i don't see the need to improve, its nearly always the case that as it comes from your head is how it should be, sometimes a word here and there, maybe even a line or punctuation, i'm the worst for that hav'ent got a clue apart from comma's lol, for this poem it seems fine to me, maybe those who are better than me might have advice but mine is its very good :)
