A Promise

I can't promise
If you live for love
You'll never be alone,
Left crying in the dark.

I can't say
Whether you'll go cold
Or hungry for a week
Or month between
Your heartbeats.

I can tell you
There are no regrets,
That every scar is earned,
Catalogued and kept inside
For darker hours.


  1. Ben, I really like this one. Particularly the second stanza. SO beautiful.

  2. So full of truth, Ben, and beautifully said. Have you ever read "The History of Love" by Nicole Krauss? It's an amazing novel, pure poetry. I highly recommend it. xo

  3. I love that third stanza ~ It is interesting to read a guy's take on these ~

  4. And it is always we find solace in the scars in the middle of the night..I hope though that each morning is worth the darkness..jae


You've found your way inside my head and now there's no way out!
