Promises Won't Grow

Sure took me a while
To realize that promises won’t grow
Ways to only know how
How everyone is promised a lonely soul

It wasn’t until I knew
I know but did not realize
At least not till its real
The moment when love dies

And its hard to go on... alone
Is it really better like everyone says?
Just the other day I was walking home
To only seem like never days

Perhaps irrelevant to think so
Perhaps irrelevant to burden love
Years bearing to only hold
When a broken promise becomes but a sentence serve

A while more, just a while
Knowing before I realize too soon
Love to only know how
A promise comes from a broken wound

Poem inspired with the song "Hard Left by Robin Hackett"
