Broken Promises - Poem by MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

Melvin Banggollay

When I accepted you back in my arms
After you had broken my tender heart
You accosted that you'll never leave me
and share your love to no else but me.

I believed you when you promised to me
that you'll never let me cry in deep misery
For my love to you is beyond eternity
Willing to forgive and forget infidelity.

Again, you let me touched tears of agony
As you shared your loveliness willingly
to another lover's enchanting serenade
killing my heart with a thousand grenade.

Dammed this fool heart for loving tenderly
A woman despite of showing no mercy,
respect and honor to the dignity of the family
I tried to nestle with much love and loyalty.

Tears keep falling as I behold my child
For having a mother who always get wild
Soaring in the wilderness to find a love
I tried to give with everything I ever had.

    What a wonderful description of a man's love.
    Broken promises?
    I've been there.
    I know that im too young to get involved in such things but it doesn't mean i don't have the right to love someone.
    Well, that really hurts.
    Life is full of broken promises, not just one and i know you are prepared for it.
    Anyways, keep safe.
    Im watching out for more of your poems.

    you did an excellent job conveying your feelings. sorry to read this poem. just remember If you love something, set it free. if it comes back to you it is your, if it doesn't, it was never meant to be. life is harsh and we have to bite the bitter realities that comes in our way. take care and keep in touch.
