Broken Promises


Warning annals of everlasting science, parading cadavers
down through the ages.

Filling life with decayed thoughtlessness, leaving all
sense in a pit of fire.

Forgotten leaves of yesterday, dry and crumbled, soiled
linen from the past.

Destroyed alien forgetfulness, sinned instead against a
class of human beings, wanting to be separated from them.

Forever falling down stone steps, filled with granite
hatred of lying lips.

Beckoning whomever will come forward, just to tear their
heart from between their ribs.

Holding nothing sacred, promises are made so that they
may be broken into everlasting pieces.

Floating through the atmosphere, never being able to put
them back again for sorrow has filled their place with
many tears.
