Empty Promises are evil

Empty Promises

by Harper Callix

It's usually something that happens often

People hear them everyday

Usually it's not a big deal

But to some it hurts

There are some people who are told these everyday

It hurts them to the core

It makes them feel as if they were thrown into the gutter

Like they don't matter at all

These are promises that get you sky high

and then drop you into a sea of darkness

these promises break itty bitty pieces of you

but somehow you get caught up in the sky

and dropped again

These empty promises

are always told

But why

for what

It's easy to keep a promise

Why dropped people into the sea?

That reason is unknown

It's these empty promises

That are one of these things that push some people down

But.....

Why?

This poem is deeply expressive of a person let down and hurt over the shimmering of promises holding nothing. This is why the life of a cynical skeptic is ever so happy. You don't get let down because you knew from the get-go that the promise was full of sound and glory signifying nothing. Great poem!!!!
