one empty promise

By: Melissa Diane Lissyb7

you say, "we were no good together"
then what was this talk of forever?
when times were tough...
you and I were always enough
how could you forget the love we had?
have all the memories of us gone bad?
to sum it up to those five words...
those two whole years... you really have nerve
our dreams became one for so long,
and now you say all was wrong?
i have a few words to sum it just right...
words i never thought i'd use for us...that is...until tonight
i guess you've forgotten all our wishes...
late night talks and passionate kisses.
we had our moments in the sun...
just when i thought our love had only begun...
it was gone like a faded memory...
for you don't recall all the love you had for me...
i do and know it's still there...
like a flame that won't be put out burning the night air.
you'll realize it someday...
that's the price you'll have to pay.
my hopes of you and me...
through this pen...i am setting free.
you say we were no good, this is what i call it...
one broken heart, one empty promise.
