Bald Words


Bald Words

You had many plans –

all for later.

And she thought

that a miracle will happen.

You told her –

your bald words,

words like checks without cover.

She was sure

it would be just like you promised.

She never dared to ask:

when will it be new?

Yet you

did not have any plans.

You knew

that you will not make change in your life!


Eliza Segiet
