Broken

A promise I made, I did break,
but the promise was just to me.
For no one, no pain I would take;
A promise I made, I did break.
Blindly I leapt, forgot the stake,
halfway in fall, too late to see;
A promise I made, I did break,
but the promise was just to me.


November PAD Challenge Day 5. #novpad5

The month of November sees the Poem-a-Day (PAD) challenge, hosted by Robert Lee Brewer at Poetic Asides. Day 5 theme is to write a broken poem. The poem can be specifically about something breaking or just include something (or someone for that matter) that’s broken. Thanks Robert for the inspiration.

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  7. > A broken promise to self would feel that way, self-harm… it does hurt a hell lot at times, AAKRITI. Thank you.. Yes, the promise was given to myself long back by me itself.. I didn't expect to break it either. Or maybe it's just a feeling that I've broken that promise.. Not sure! Glad you found the perspective unique..! πŸ™‚ Thanks!
