You Promised Me Forever - You Kept You Promise (Poetry & Art)

You are so good to me,
You love me so very much.
If it wasn’t for your love for me
I would not be good enough.

If only I would remember this,
I wouldn’t make you mad…
You told me you were sorry
For those awful things you said.

I know now that It was my fault,
I don’t deserve your love.
I’m foolish to think otherwise,
You remind me with a shove.

But you apologize and hold me,
Beg forgiveness for what you’ve done.
If only I had just obeyed you,
You would not have needed the gun.

You promised me forever
This promise to me you gave.
Now I am yours forever,
Buried in an unmarked grave. . .

Artist's Description

Please listen to the music below while viewing

Island by Heather Nova

Something that looks colorful & happy from the outside can be covering a web of lies, deception & pain. A beautiful facade. A deeper look may reveal more than meets the eye.

Look a Little Closer

Abuse comes in various forms; physical, sexual, verbal and emotional. . .
Any form is unacceptable.

A hit, a kiss, a kick, a kiss. . . he’s too scared to hit me now, he brings flowers instead. . .

This image was inspired by one of my favorite songs (below) by Heather Nova. . . please listen as you view this.
