Throwback Friday – Promises – Eric (EDC Writing)

He a man untied
to time or anything
beyond accepted promises

She his curved ball
provokes imagination
believes she can be his

Conscience slips and slides
everyday more blind
to all he’ll leave behind

As he sleeps he stares
sees her in his darkness
light rolls back their years

Love beyond words
felt though unheard
their promises unbroken


EDC, an Englishman, a scientist, retired fellow, now writing, as is, whatever comes into his head. Can be found blogging poetry, lines and other things as ‘EDC Writing -Believing Sight Unseen’ at – a collection ‘Shorts – a take on poetry’ published by Potter’s Grove Press in May 2020.
