(A Poem requested by a friend)

What are promises
but mere words slipped from a gifted tongue
No meaning, no sense
yet can leave the heart stung

No more than a lie
uttered in the heat of passion
Just intoxicated
in wild and feverish sensation

Can you really promise forever?
When you're sure you'd keep it never?

But promises written in the heart
spoken by the eyes
Locked in the mind with sealed lips
are no lies

But are there any left,
in this insane world?
Where you can have everything
but never can hold?

I don't wanna wish or hope...
that is too much expectation
Just play along with life's game
without any delusion.
