Broken Promise


I heard a sharp cracking sound
like a dry twig that was stepped upon by a giant foot
when I turned around
I realised that you had broken a promise
you promised to stand by me
through thick and thin
but when push came to shove
you turned your back on me and walked away
you didn't even raise your finger
you had both your hands down
like my wall clock at six thirty
I couldn't face the fact that you had betrayed me
I felt like my heart had been shredded
It was all because of a broken promise
Nobody sticks to their vows nowadays

    Well done.
    I really liked how you personified a promise and made it more as an imagery.
    Moreover, the onomatopoeia used is also good.
    Overall, I really liked it.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
