I Promise

I promise…I promise I won’t desert you This hardship you’re facing at the moment is temporary Tonight…tonight, I will show you love so true By wiping your tears of sorrow and showing you tomorrow happily I wake up to the echoes of your empathy in my ears I breathe your words of priceless wonders for many years You got a hold of my heart of hopefulness By being so endearing in what you do and say…all the way... I actually have an infatuation of your madness You are like the moon in the night and the sun in the day You hypnotize me by your music of muses and fantasies Your heartbeats against my chest are killing me softly Your love is like a field full of passion fire and daisies Dragon flies and butterflies flutter oh so slowly but surely I’m sick of living this life of fake glee Your past is as long and dragging as a history book Wondering how I can be free and flee You can look at all the wrongs I’ve done – take a look! Feeling like you’re temperamental these days Unreliable and unpredictable in many ways Broken promises and vanished wishes overwhelm me and make me feel so regretful Giving my heart a break from breaking into bits and pieces The reason I cry myself to sleep and feel awful all day is because you’re being neglectful You can’t just mend me completely by hugs and kisses I haven’t landed my rickety fingers on uplifting notes on the wrecked-up piano I don’t wanna feel for you…I wanna be numb all my worthless life… You know that I can’t fight these urges of lust anymore – I feel remorse’s blow I want to have a mindset of motivation and bliss, not selfish strife Munching on the leaves of the Weeping Willow – the sickening sadness of my past Punching at you as if you’re my punching bag…I took a bow at your success show, knowing all too well that my euphoric state will not last… I promise…I promise I won’t be angry at you or me; instead, I’m moving forward This captivity we’re both in won’t close in on us – we are soaring like a free bird Today…today, I will show you my secrets behind my actions and thoughts Let me flow like a river and let my free spirit glide…fill in the blanks and trace the dots I go to sleep with your harmonious melody – a lullaby from the start I beg of you not to stop or my problems will attack me and tear me apart Be brave and be happy, for I grieve for your safety’s sake Let God be Your guide and shield or your life will be at stake You got me engrossed in your poetic pangs of passions, so please don’t go, my gracious radiance Your pain and joy I cradle day and night, so that you can be relieved by brilliant benevolence You hypnotize me by your music of muses and fantasies Your heartbeats against my chest are killing me softly Your love is like a field full of passion fire and daisies Dragon flies and butterflies flutter oh so slowly but surely You’re aware that we go through so many rollercoasters In this peculiar, yet exciting relationship that heals and injures Our heart, our mind, and our soul through thick and thin But, our spirits roam together in unison again and again and again Sometimes, I wish we can go back in time to change all the things we’ve done But, all is said and done and we can’t do anything about it to our misfortune Yeah, yet, I still got my inner inspiration and confident humility from dusk to dawn You and I are like a mixture of two different genres of music, almost out of tune It’s enough to make something eccentric beautiful It’s enough to strengthen our weak bones in this bond of bittersweet bliss It’s enough for us to make pure progress plentiful It’s enough to make us believe we are worth it, despite feeling so helpless It’s so extraordinary how awesome and horrible we did While going through so much since the goodbyes we bid Loving your smile of pensive, pleasant and precious pride Still, something in me has died while we’re on this bumpy ride You hypnotize me by your music of muses and fantasies Your heartbeats against my chest are killing me softly Your love is like a field full of passion fire and daisies Dragon flies and butterflies flutter oh so slowly but surely How time flies and your ugly goodbyes can’t be erased I feel that the puzzle pieces of my brain are pieced together Deep inside and in you too, this disgraceful hate is interlaced You still manage to conquer me with your haven of feeling better Our lows and highs and our endless truths became lies in a rush…guess what? It’s dangerous to be falling for your envious poison and feeling like literally…nothing Uneasiness grows and you can’t hear my cries because avarice narcissism crawls into you and devours you…it is polluting you inside out…you plague my everything I promise…I promise I won’t screw up with your ego anymore… Sorry, but your flawless reputation means very little to me – there’s more in store Your affection and your lovingkindness are the things that I adore Character and action demonstrate dazzling delight more than words could ever portray Be my guest and believe in your immense potential, but your spirit has gone astray I learned that I can’t lean on others’ for support for long I learned that trustworthiness is a promise, not from the liar I promise…I promise not to leave you empty-handed all along I burned away the desire to discourage and disrespect you – our love is an everlasting empire That will be a forever fire It will not turn to ashes any time soon I will lift you even higher I will inspire you to be a sunlit moon

I agree with what you're saying. Thank you - this one is full of promises and alike from the heart and it took motivation and trial, but I felt like I've done a pretty decent job on this one. It's humbling, encouraging, and awesome, writing from the heart and receiving good comments with it. Thank you once again for yours. -JWE
