Broken Promises

May 15, 2011
They told me not to shed a tear,
They told me that I shouldn't fear,
They told me you would never leave,
But now all my heart can do is grieve.

You said I was the one you pictured marrying,
When truth is deep down you were never that caring,
You take my breath away with every breath you take,
But I have finally realized your nothing but a fake.

You called me baby and I called you sweetheart,
But somewhere deep down we knew it wasn't smart,
I wish I could hold you one last time,
But everyone acts like that would be a crime.

You made me shed a million tears,
You let all those other girls interfere,
Your best friend tried to break us apart,
You finally got tried of it and broke my heart.

You promised to love me until the day I died,
But now the only promise is the tears I cried,
I hope you know I will always love you,
Deep down I know you will always love me too.

So baby please do not fret,
I know one day you will regret,
But for now I bid you a sweet farewell,
As the tears in my eyes are beginning to swell.

And that one day when you come back for me,
I'll be sitting on the front porch just me and my baby,
And you will be wishing you never made the mistake,
Of letting my poor, fragile, little heart break.

Your work is amazing ! Just one piece of advice though ... I've looked through all of your poems, and they seem to be set up the same way . Maybe you should try to write a different kind of poem than 4 line stanzas with rhyming . Don't get me wrong, I love your poetry !! But you could grow more as a writer and maybe appeal to a wider audience ! good luck ! (:
