Promise

Standard

 Red hearts among white hearts

The distance was thought to be too far,

The river too wide to cross,

The mountain too high to climb

It’d be easier to accept the loss

 

Given the doubt that remained between, all dreams once known now unseen, passion left behind for less than friendship it seems; surely there are better things

 

Then the curtain lifted high, new eyes to view the room; an ember, smothered beneath the ashes, now burns a vibrant hue

 

Dust is knocked from weathered feet, clean steps a gift given to pursue and surely as the sun shall rise, my heart belongs to you…

  1. That’s really good. I’m very interested in the concept of distances between people, there’s a silly piece on my blog called Tow Trucks that deals with this, but not as nicely as you’ve done.
