The promise

Cold winter breeze

over a sleepy oak forest.

The promise of a kiss, a ritual

before the long sleep.

Her cold breath,

whispering,

warm melodies of her world.

His jaded eyes

waiting,

for the silence;

in memories of her words.

The leaves now yellow,

the sky turned

gray and still.

For his love will soon be harsh,

and his patience

ravaged, within.

From eternity,

she is traveling;

holding the answer

under her lips.

Fidelity dies with love,

even time doesn’t mend

the broken strings.

Her melody,

now broken, and her love,

blue and still.

She whispered in his ears,

the promise,

to come back next spring.

His twigs flickered,

to reach her,

one last time.

She kissed him

with her cold lips, he is

pleased with the

gentle lie.

The unsung story,

of his youth, will soon

fly with her,

beyond far.

For she didn’t age in

centuries,

her tiring youth,

forgotten with

a new start.

He closed his eyes

as she drifted past him,

the leaves followed her,

shyly,

for some time.

She carried them awhile,

for she loved him,

dearly;

But, the pale leaves,

now, free from

the promise,

fell behind

peacefully,

on the ground.

  1. No no.. Actually am just asking you dt will this Word press b d right blog to promote d youtube videos of dancers like me.. Coz people here are mostly writers nd i didnt find someone belonging to some other genre uptil now

    1. yes you are right. WordPress is mostly about writing, but dance itself is an art and there are many who are indulged in such writings. You can follow people who are interested in dance forms, i guess, it would not be difficult for you to search. You can post still images on you page and a link of your youtube page. It is possible to promote, all you need is to find the right audience.
