Promises

You promised me you’d never leave me. You broke that promise.
You said I was the only one you’d ever love. You lied.
You told me you’d always be there for me. But you’re not.
I said I love you more than anything in the world. I AM telling the truth.
Are you ever gonna come back? I’m crying over you.
Are you ever gonna need me again? I feel like I’ve died for you.
I promised you I’d always be there for you. I still am.
I said I would always keep you in my heart. And I have.
I told you nothing matters to me more than you. Nothing does.
Am I ever gonna desert you? No, I am not.
Am I ever gonna forget you? No, because I can’t.
I will love you forever and always, and that is a promise.

This is very well-written. I love the beginning and end coming together, and how much emotion you poured into it! Could you maybe check out my poem Valentines Day, or Mental Snapshot? Thanks and keep writing!

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL.

Everything i have recently felt.. it really spoke to me. Your first love is always the hardest to walk away from, but it DOES get easier.

this poem really spoke to me. i could feel the raw emotion you are writing about. i like the way you started with saying that he broke your promise, and then ending with saying that you will keep a promise. it tied together very nicely. check out some of my work, too if you'd like. keep writing! and i love this piece
