Promises Thought

Hate me if you must
I never planned to hurt you
You imagined promises 
Those words I never spoke
Our kiss was oh so brief
Electricity filled the air
I longed for your embrace
We played our passionate game
Young lovers intertwined
You smiled 
I whispered in your ear
All those things that lovers say


Read backwards and forwards another reverse poem.

    ouch those imagined promises are what hurt both people ultimately, kisses can be taken as promises sometimes. good poem.

    Unfortunately in the past I have been on both ends of this equation.

    This hit hard in both perspectives. Tremendous outpouring of heart, per usual in all of your writings.
