PROMISES

Promises forever
Love that never dies
Words so easily  spoken
Were nothing more than lies.

Cajoled, tricked and maneuvered
Led down the garden path
Looking at your photograph
I still can hear you laugh.

Innocent and trusting
Never thought you’d walk away
Foolishly I believed
Every promise that you made.

Holding on to memories
Elusive and obscure
Time has a way of taking
Everything that once was yours.

Shattered and abandoned
Forsaken left behind
You are a mere illusion
You were never truly mine.
