Empty Promises

by Faithless   Jan 26, 2009


Promises made up of empty words
Trust betrayed by lines and verse
Precious moments couldn't be reversed
Life seems like a never ending curse

Time slips away, couldn't be caught
Buses and trains provide my transport
Your plane takes off from the airport
Unspoken words unable to teleport

Clouds fill with rain and thunder
Thoughts of closeness only drift us further
Hopes for sweetness only proves bitter
Changing season calls for surrender

Heart useless clutching on for years
Dark rings circling eyes full of tears
Longing and waiting but you never appeared
Fate's interpretations remains unclear

Living life without a purpose nor a goal
Orange summer turns winter cold
Have sympathy for this tired soul
Fore you have left me a burning hole

    This entire poem is absolutely amazing. The emotions pour out perfectly. The flow, and the word choice are completely on-point.

    "Living life without a purpose nor a goal
    Orange summer turns winter cold
    Have sympathy for this tired soul
    Fore you have left me a burning hole"

    = This is my favourite stanza. The second line, more specifically- it created a picture in my mind, more so than any of the other lines.

    Overall, a beautiful piece. :)

    Not just the best stanza in this poem
    but the best stanza I have read in a while
    Especially the line
    "Orange summer turns winter cold"
    Just paints a brilliant picture

    The rest of the poem was very well written
    It flowed really well
    I really enjoyed reading it

    5/5
