kokopelle: Frank n Furter (Frank-n-Furter)
The poem “Where Promised Die” was written for a competition with the challenge, “post poems talking about promises you've been told and whether or not they were kept.” I heavily reworked a prior poem about gazing into the eyes during dance.


Where Promises Die

The eyes hint at much, a world is offered
everything is promised, destiny unknown
look into the eyes, unblinking orbs
look into the soul, absorbing it all.

I see clarity of purpose unknown
I see vitality of source deep within
a life resides here welcoming me
inviting departure if I fall inside.

Kindness is revealed, returned now in kind
lest I find the tip, dagger unsheathed
pools of emotion, shadows at play
I’ll swim the deep depths where promises die
look into the eyes, beauty thy name
entrancing the mind and killing my heart.
