Victim of convenience

Don’t promise me forever,
what word would wait that long
Whose temporary heart
could to eternity belong
Each shallow beat a funeral drum
and we, a brief parade
Don’t promise me forever
as even now, we fade
Don’t promise me forever
with sunset in your eyes
a dying day to sink within
the night’s cozened disguise
Leave tacit tomorrows to
the virtued and contrite
Don’t promise me forever
just help me get through the night.
**please, no more goodbyes**
