Good Intentions


I promise

I promise

Constantly repeated

No value detected

Full of hopefully delight

As much truth as saying “I Love” to a virgin

Only to get in their pants

That love was never real

Don’t dare argue

Why promise at all

Never meant to honor those words

Kept less than half the promises

Better off wishing on a star

Or dropping a coin down the well

Better chances of those coming true

Just wishful thinking

I promise

How foolish the illusion

I promise means I won’t

Not wanting to break your heart in the moment

The brokenhearted will come with time

To escape judging eyes

We promise all things

While never intending to do them

In the spirit of traditional

I promise to keep my promises

Just as the Raven said
