The Only Promise I Will Ever Promise

By Melinda Wilder

If you do anything

For long enough


It will become normal

I promise

You won’t feel that your bed

Is half empty


I promise

You won’t miss breakfast

On the floor

For long

I promise

The sound of your own footsteps

Won’t echo down the hallway

For eternity

I promise

You’ll learn all the whiskeys

To swirl them on your tongue

And taste honey

I promise

Touch won’t be a trap

But an oasis of beauty

And freedom

You’ll be forgotten by others

Yet your presence will grow

As you remember yourself


Today, Hey Lou Writes is 3 years old.

To anyone who’s stumbled upon these words… thank you.

Here’s one of the first photos I ever posted on Hey Lou. <3
