the curse of a sentimental heart & a skeptical mind

Disintegrate

Trust has woven
its delicate strands
around neglected
promises and
long-forgotten declarations,
stretched thin in
too many places, ready
to disintegrate at any moment.

Promises

Promise me, you said,
and I hesitated,
even after
the despondency
in your eyes
lashed out at me.

But I could not say
what you wanted to hear,
and now your dejection,
and my guilt
linger in
my silence.
