promises never kept

startling news,
shaken voice.
and you said,
“hush my baby,
this is not the end.”

wild sobbing,
trembling form.
and you said,
“hush my baby,
you will be okay.”

flooding tears,
frightened face.
and you said,
“hush my baby,
i will comfort you.”

unstable thoughts,
muddled state.
and you said,
“hush my baby,
just call my name.”

hurt feelings,
detached mind.
and you said,
“hush my baby,
I'll never leave.”

I believed you.
I trusted you.
I loved you.
I called your name,
but you left.
