Promises - Poem by G. Newton V. Chance
</>I promised you the world, my love,
But the world slipped through my fingers
Like water through a sieve,
A forearm through a sleeve
Or sunshine through the leaves.
I promised you my dreams, my love,
But my dreams evaporated
Like water in the sun,
A foetus never born,
An action never done.
Promised you my love, my love,
But love slipped through my fingers
Like water through fish gill,
A hundred dollar bill
Or wind through window sill.
I gave to you my world, my love,
But the wind slipped through my fingers,
And like toy balloons, inflated,
Love floated off to other dreams
And left us incarcerated.
