Promise me, you said,
and I hesitated,
in your eyes
lashed out at me.
But I could not say
what you wanted to hear,
and now your dejection,
and my guilt
I require love, attention, food, exercise and naps. I am basically a puppy.
dejection, doubt, free verse, hesitation, nevermakeapromiseyoucannotkeep, poem, poetry, promise, silence

Ouch. I hope this wasn’t based on a true story. That pain really comes through.
