Promised – a poem about………

I vowed to build walls around us,
protecting love and life,
she would want for nothing,
other than what I could give.
Lies lead to more untruth,
gut-wrenching bile serving the proof,
as I recognised,
that I was nothing other than a misspent youth.
Yet, there was a union,
formed through bitterness and confusion,
at a world that was spiralling out of control, and
I couldn’t access,
the words that I wanted to say, about how I felt when she was born.
Old eyes cloud over the wounds left,
none of it matters anymore,
I promised her the stars,
and she left me with,
