Broken Promises -- Poetry 2011





Seat belt rolls into place

dragging the buckle up the frame;

similar to rattling chains of the departed,

ones so attached to vices they lost their

souls to gain more and more…



I haven’t lost my soul to greed.

Mine is more a hardening of trust;

a closing down to avoid pain’s bite

when relationship departure rips,

tears, shreds emotional sanity.



I’ll probably be dragging a heavy heart

wrapped in serrated chains; constantly

cutting into heart shaped muscle…

bleeding and bleeding love’s broken promises…
