Your Latest Promise #30in30 #make30 #poetry

You serve me hot dogs

On a paper plate.

The ketchup looks

Like dripping blood.


I eat deliberately,

Thinking solely of

Your latest offering

Your latest promise.


Why should I hope?

(Because I want it.)

Why should I consider?

(It’s all I ever wanted.)


Your love is the carrot

Dangling out of reach

That I’ve been chasing after

For these sixteen odd years.


But now I question

Why I race

Why I chase

After your promises

After your tease

After your lies

After your love.


It’s only just a carrot.
