Poetry Challenge Day 10 – Broken Promise

Todays prompt: Write an “un-love poem”.


The wrinkles wrap her hand in time
New lines form with each day
The ring of promise circles none
Instead it’s tucked away

With card and song he gave to her
This token of his heart
Small steps they took to seal their love
A future they would start

But as time passed he never asked
And love walked out the door
The ring she kept forgotten not
But hidden in a drawer

The promise to be one at last
A memory she could see
But he forgot the promise made
And had a new family

The ring an empty void of love
Was once a dream to start
But life not lived between these two
Broke the promise broke the heart
