A Promise Unkept

A Promise Unkept

A Poem by Her Beautiful Melancholy
"

A poem I wrote for a friend just because of her lies and unkept promises that nearly cost our friendship.

"
You left me a wound,
A promise unkept.
Pretending you did nothing,
You went on with your precious life.
Your lies kept us apart
Our friendship seemingly broken
Just like that.
Sounding so sure
Nobody would know
Making them think
You're such an innocent girl.
Well, I don't care.
I won't even stare.
I won't waste my time to bear
All the hurts I have put aside
Just for me to give a chance
At a, perhaps, forgotten lie.
You left me a wound,
A promise unkept.
Pretending you did nothing,
You went on with that ridiculous lie.
