Broken Promise

Updated: Feb 10, 2022


The stars and the moon were the prime witnesses;

The skies noticed it ;

And the oceans acknowledged it.

When you looked into my eyes, held my hand and promised" To be there for me forever and always. "

The promise was sealed with a kiss

And I had a belief that you shall never dismiss.

For the bond we shared stood on pillars of faith.

But little did I know

The promise you made was nothing more than frozen ice.

No matter it looked so precise,

But still could not withstand the soaring temperatures with passing time.

I wept and mourned

When you bereft me and

left; I tried hard to get over the pain and forget;

It seemed like a well planned theft; which had a long lasting effect.

Still at times ,I find it hard to accept the truth.

And I blamed the destiny for why we ever met and I fell into your net and shall always regret.

For I believed that promises were always kept. 😞

From the contents, it seems to be a personal experience. Relations may be reciprocal n in punjabi it is called ghar vich bhande kharke hi jande ne...so dear life is like adjusted balance sheet. Life without a lady is cumbersome💓

Depends upon person to person and circumstances.

If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, will find an Excuse.
