Not Kept

[audioΒ https://audioboo.fm/boos/2142277-not-kept.mp3]

 

A promise said

Meant and kept

By a heart

A soul

Who knows

What it means

To finally be whole

To be made

With a promise

Meant and kept

 

Hollow words

So loosely said

From false and spewing lips

Wherein love

Does not exist

Just pretty

Petty words

That swear

Uselessly

 

Hearts and souls given

Unjustly

With no real trust

While in reality

Love does rust

Sitting

Baking

In rain and shine

Pouring down

On devotion blind

 

To what do we owe

This surfeit of

Emptiness

This hollowness

This pure bullshit

Does it lie

In our seeking

Of meaning

Of love and lust

And all these things

So meaningless

In the end

 

So what

What do we do

When I make promise

To you

Do we take

and give

All of us

Do we mistake

Compassion for love

Can we ever

See fucking clearly

Through this haze

Of desire

Through this unkempt

Fire

 

What remains

Of promises

What is it that

Continues to live

When hearts and vows

Are broken

And not a word spoken

Is ever to be trusted

Ever again

What do we do

With a promise

Not meant or kept

To the end

 


Desolation And Ruin

Plaster dust
shades of rust
timbers fallen down.
This is what I offer you.
No wonder that you frown.

I can’t give you gold or silver.
I truly own nothing of worth.
Even my love is broken.
Crumbled into the earth.

I’d offer you a desolate land
Where new life rarely springs forth
I’d offer you, whatever I have
But it won’t be enough, of course.

So away I go
Withdrawing hope
Welcoming the ache
I won’t ask
You to pay
For this painful mistake.

I won’t ask anything
For I have nothing to give.
