When Faith Dwindles Fatal

With measures of love
and measures of loss,
there promises be spake,
and love be professed.
So may come calamity of betrayal

How broken the heart cries,
how easy the tears flood!
When chaos ruins,
and promises be rescinded,
-there shatters the hope.

All can be aright
for all there can be hope,
and in faith, there be strength
But with lies and fabrication
There the heart loses strength

So much strength there was
in mandate obediently kept
But in the midst of betrayal,
when wounds are further inflicted,
one loses any want to love at all

Sincerity dares not counter promise
and still dare not risk undoing
But when faith dwindles fatal,
one's undoing seems inevitable
were one to find one held on to fable.
