Empty Promises Poem by Lacie Wasserman

Empty Promises

Rating: 4.8

You said you were sure. It wasnt what I thought.
That was a lie. You were fake.
But I believed you and took a higher stake.
You whispered little nothings in my ear.
I mistook them for big somethings.
You and your empty promises.
It was me who was bidding on something I couldnt win.
Your heart.
I found out things I wish I would have known from the start before.
Just you and your thoughts to score.
Tired of being let down. Hopeing I was makeing you proud.
Believing your silly nothings. Beliving your lies.
So I say good bye.
To you and your empty promises.


Empty promises exist in empty eyes that never lie.10.

Empty mind, empty heart, empty thoughts, but full of themselves. Meet too many of these type people and you learn to spot them right away. :) DC
