Promises

He promised,

the words came out of his mouth,

proud, eager and a bit touched.

They had the honor to prepare the way,

the power to banish sleep

and melt it away in a puddle of desire.

The words worked all day and night,

a trail of quivering perfection after them

Anticip-pation,

Elation,

Doubt

Frustration,

Pain

Fear

Disillusionment

And heavy sleep again.

The words turned back

Eager explorers no longer

Just frozen pieces ofΒ  l-i-e-s

Into a mouth which refused to open.

And let them go home.
