Proof

Promise
is such a small word
when you utter it from
the corner of your mouth,
half-whispered because
of how afraid you are of it,
as if you can hide from it
by not acknowledging it
too loudly.
Promise
is such a big word
when its delivered
with conviction but
in the end you
throw your back out
from the effort of
sweeping it up when
it gets smashed
all over the floor.
