...and "trust" has only one

yes, "promise" has two syllables

just like two lips that kiss
and if one partner break the vow
then all that's left is "miss"
a misrepresentation
a miscue on one's part
a missive full of misery
a missile through the heart
i miss the love that we once had
the promises we made
the passion that once warmed us
is left shivering in shade
yes, trust is just one syllable
and harder to adjust
but if you wear it down a bit
the whole thing turns to "rust"
the gold will rust away to stone
and tears may rust one's face
and all this rust just turns to dust
and blows away in space
i miss the love that we once had
the trust we held so dear
who thought the sun that ruled our sky
would simply disappear
