Broken Promises - Poem by Dixon Irene

You promised to be my warmth
now you leave me in the cold.
You promised to support me no matter what
still I find myself all alone feeling like no one cares.

You promised to give me strenghth,
still I find myself grasping for a crutch.
You promised not to take my love for granted
but it's like you think that I will keep holding on.

You promised to never give me reasons to distrust you,
but after seeing you with her I dont know.
You promised to never say things in anger,
here I am still hurt by your words.

These are all broken promises,
that you can work on
but not with me
find someone else to practice on.

You promised to quit smoking,
but your lungs are blackened by lies.
You promised never to hurt me
but the pain you caused is unbearable.
