I Promise

In writing

These words

I promise I won’t leave

In my head

The last insane thought

Maybe you will be back

From my heart

A last gasp

Then reluctantly letting go

Through my eyes



The words

In writing

The promise

The great white lie

I promise never to leave…


It is final
For days
No inspiration

A canvas
Void of ideas

A bucket
No bottom
Everything falls right through

A mind
Thoughtless and hollow

Oh the finality
The bitter ending

Giving up
Giving in

Crumpling the paper
Laying down the pen

Shutting my eyes

Nothing to write

Turning the page now

Our chapter is ending

Closing the book one final time

Slowly erasing your memory from my mind…
