Promises Forgotten

We once held hands interlocking fingers,

A promise to each other

We said we would be strong,



That the vast oceans wouldn’t separate us

And we would make it work.

But then the winter arrived with darkened seas,

turbulent waves,

and dangerous, unchartered waters.

Questioning the belief we had in each other

Whether we could keep the darkness at bay.

I did

You couldn’t.

Do you think it’s enough?

Is it ever enough?

For we surrendered to bleakness,

to despair,

to be tossed about at the whim of the waves.

Where do we go?

We keep rewinding

A barrel of promises smashed in the weeds


And.. forgotten.


This post is for Day 13 of UBC and Daily Chatter
