This is my promise

This is my promise

A Poem by willweb

 

This is my promise…

an opened palm, waiting

deeply entrenched lines of pain and constant trying,

sent to you in a display of defined truth

 

~ To hold you in your times of need ~

 

Extended fingers, never crossed or hidden

Grasping beyond

a formidable cloud of doubt,

unfolded on every darkened horizon

 

~ To lift you when you fall ~

 

Rough and leathered flesh

So warm when needed,

strong of grip, but soft

and firm of calming ease

 

~ To caress you when you are weak ~

 

A clenched fist,

white knuckle guardians,

unfaltering in the face of fear,

steel and rivet fastened feelings

 

~ To protect you always ~

 

This is my promise…my hand,

in true unyielding friendship

forever ready…reaching

to you

thats quite a good promise to make, and the promise itself is delivered in a beautiful way. The imagery you used added more spice and gave the poem a bigger punch. Youve done a great job with this piece :)

Thank you so very much Dan for visiting my work again. I appreciate your kindness
a fine poem Will, makes me think of the writing of Bronte i'm not sure why it has a feel about it of those times, it is though a quite remarkable piece and raises your writing prowess to ever new heights :)

I cannot tell you how much I absolutely love this Will.. you have touched me with a few of your writes, but none such as this.. This mixes friendship, respect, affection, compassion, and heartfelt concern.. the depth of sincerity, I think is what hits me the most.. the openness, honesty, soft vulnerability mixed with the strength, courage, valor and honor of a true gentleman.. this is every girl's fantasy.. to be soft and romantic--and strong and gallant.. The lines that you emphasized with ~~~ stood out and made my heart melt a little more with each one.. The imagery was skillfully and beautifully done to represent such a wholehearted, endearing gesture.. I loved this.. she is such a lucky lady, I hope she knows that sir!
