Vow

Do you remember the promises
each to the other made?
I swore to you that I would not
make ribbons of my flesh
and I have held to that despite
all desire and suffering
I swore to you that I would love
no matter the circumstance or crisis
and I have held to that despite
some ill-chose words and anguish
I pledged to you that I would ever
be only yours and yours alone
and I have held to that
I always will
I affirmed to you that I would not despair
and I have failed in that
I am wracked with it and broken
as you knew I would be
You committed to me that we would talk
you have broken that compact
with callous disregard and
complete contempt
You declared to me your love
fated and undying in your heart
you have told me in silence
to fall on my sword
