“Promise”

07 May

“Promise”, by Michael Eric Oberlin
May 6th, 2013

I promise simple things
To provide what frightens you
To take away your comfort
To remove what you need
To bring you to places
You alone might avoid

I do not wish a reader comfort
For in my heart
I know
The readers read
To leave a duller life behind them
