poetry by j matthew waters

promises once made

you come in and out of my life
like a thief in the night
robbing me of dreams
I once held promisingly

sometimes you are the moon
cloaked by daylight
following my every move
without ever knowing

sometimes you are the rain
the kind that falls softly
comforting the troubles
that seem to haunt me

and although I can’t touch you
I can feel you are near
like a promise once made
kept dear in my heart

may two thousand sixteen
