Tuesday Poem: Promise

3 Jan

I wanted to tell you that you are a dreamer

a creature of habit and inspiration

You run back and forth

back and forth

an undualating wave of promises broken

and regrets that stick in your teeth

you just keep on pushing back

against the weight of people’s expectations

on to the next one

and the next one is  the right one

you are sure of it

but I have to tell you

you are a dreamer

lost in the fog of mourning
