The promise

Over these eternal years
many promises I made
some as clear as bloody tears
most impregnable as shade.

Promises made out of fears
hoping my feats would soon fade
My heart bleeds out holy spears
But i can’t feel unafraid.

Peace is music to my ears!
Oh those hopes I have mislaid.
I feel lonely, it appears,
For more courage I have prayed.

Guardian angel surely hears
My own demons they have slayed
I must wait this feeling clears
Or hell will my dreams invade.
