Words, lots of captivating words

were said to him by her.

Though agreed on many things,

various subjects they did differ.

She entered his heart like a 

bright yellow morning sun.

Lighting the deepest hidden caves

inside him one by one.

Trusting her confident promises

he brought down his high and thick wall.

Showed her his vulnerable side,

he had locked away in a secret hall.

For many days and months,

she played her beautiful part.

But one time or another, every play

had to end that had a start.

After years of warming up his soul,

with a cold heart, she disappeared.

The day finally arrived upon him

that he had always feared.

The sun had finally set

leaving only darkness and silence.

He looked upon the horizon

with tears caused by her absence.

His one hand held onto

a bag of promises unfulfilled.

Another hand, over his forehead, waited

along the shore with a hope that almost killed.

With tides of time hitting his soul

he gazed upon the limitless distance.

Waiting to see his sun rise once more

to give meaning again to his existence.

  8. Stunningly beautiful!! You captured the emotions of the heart so powerfully! Kudos, well done. I loved the line – “a bag of promises unfulfilled.” What a stark contrast to the lyrics of “Time in a Bottle” (great song). This was very meaningful to me having been in that situation personally as most have at sometime in their lives. You know how to hit a nerve! Ha.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I would have never had the pleasure of enjoying this without you stopping by. Loved that this was inspired/motivated by the Daily Prompt. The one I posted was “PEEK-A-BOO”.
