Promises

Poem By crystal angel

What are promises?
If not an empty lie?
Wrapped up beautifully,
seeming to fall from the sky.

An artful way of saying
something you don't mean.
Giving someone false hope
when nothing is as it seems.

You promise forever.
You say you'll never leave.
but promises have been broken before
and everyone always leaves.

So take this box of promises
and unwrap all the lies.
Hand me whatever is left
and I'll toss them to the skies.

Your promises are always broken.
Lies are are all I see...
I gave up on you,
why don't you give up on me?

Broken

leave me to die
along with your dreams
following blindly
though you long to see

I Cant Take This Anymore

I wish that someone just knew
I wish that someone could just see
I wish that I didn’t have to keep lying
I wish that someone would just take the time to ask me

My Heart

my heart is broken
and it's all because of you
my heart can't be mended
together with some glue

Remember

do you remember
the first time we met
do you remember
the way you used to look at me

Never

Never say I love you
if you don't really care.
Never talk about feelings
that aren't realy there.
