Broken promises- Megha Sood

Broken Promises

String of broken promises

and false hopes

makes our story

A succession of lies

built on the pyre of the dead truths

because you didn’t keep the promise


You surrendered to the patriarchy

You stirred and dissolved all the hope and love

in your infected vial of anger

You cannot save me again

because you didn’t keep the promise


Don’t you dare

ask me to look at the blinding light again

pushing again me against my boundaries

asking me to breathe against my wishes

because you didn’t keep the promise


You kept the stinking lies

tucked under false pretenses

I rose from the ashes

just to be burned alive on the pyre again

You can’t  keep weaving the same

web of deceit again

Don’t you dare

because you didn’t keep the promise


The more of you try to hide it

It spreads the infection more

The more you smirk

the more you feed your ego

the more our dreams are getting suffocated

You can’t tell me to keep me going on

because you didn’t keep the promise.


I’m standing right here

alone at the crossroads of life

betrayed and broken

waiting for the tune to change

though my heart keeps mourning

with every passing breath

Well, you didn’t keep the promise.

I’m an avid reader, loves to sing, an ardent lover of poetry and sometimes can scribble few lines too. Loves to dance in the rain, have an undying love for nature, can watch the beautiful sunset for hours. I have worked in the IT field for almost a decade as a manager, worked crazy hours and traveled around the world. In that busy schedule, I never got the time to creatively express my thoughts. Now every time I finish a poem, free verse anything it fills me with so much happiness and excitement and a feeling to have created something of my own.  I blog at Megha’s World – A potpourri of emotions.
