R.S. Mallari

A Broken Promise (Love is Uncertain)

The fallen leaf
Brushed my forehead
Sadness I felt

Beneath the tree
I heard echoes
Suddenly I was singing

Listless branches
Bowed down
I trembled and ran

The roots crawled
Curled up my feet
Memories haunted me

The same tree
Witnessed us
When I promised you heaven

The same tree
That cried
When I said goodbye

The same tree
You nourished
Tears that I caused

The same tree
Where you're laid

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.
