Broken Promises......

You said you loved me.
You said you would never stop loving me.
You said I would do anything for you.
You said we are over.

If one day you realize you made a mistake, remember you pushed me away and left me there to stay.
If one day you want to say sorry for everything you did, you just forgot the promise that you said.
If one day you realize I'm no longer there, remember you finally lost the only one who cared.

There are 3 things that should never get broken; a toy, a promise and a heart.

Bom dia Steve,
The photo is very well done, as was expected of you. Your text (poem) is well written and leads to meditation.
You opened in great style the weekly theme.

Very nice. Rose often associate as love, or premises and when its broken so does the promise :D

Hi Steve,
First of all I want to congratulate you for the original and creative presentation of this piece of art. A splendid story in this rotten rose adorned with great light. Great photography, my friend! I'm left speechless!
Well done and this goes into my favorites.

Hello Steve,
Nice composition,appropriate to the theme with very sensible colours and hardness of that stick as well as its shade,TFS,my regards_Joy.

Awesome composition to go this poignant message, and how true! One reason I decided that upon retirement I will also retire my love life and enjoy being alone in the crowd. TFS

This is a kind of romantic stil life, beautifully composed and presented, good light and desaturated colors, compliments

I believe I never see a broken so delicate. Great edition dear Steve. A good title and interesting words.
It is like a ending stage . Dramatic and still so beautiful.
Um abraço

THIS is HUGE in its beauty and meaning. This is not only art ... it is beyond art. THIS touches the heart.

Dear Steve ;O))

This is a lovely shot with superb light and exposure management!
The sharpness and focus are superb, and colors are amazing.
PP work is commendable and a heavy frame suits well to the picture.
Nice work!

A good entry to Friday's theme!

Best wishes,

Lovely shot Steve and a good addition to the interesting theme you have suggested this week. I love the soft tones of the rose and your detail is as sharp as always. Like the poem too, is this another of your talents?


Hi Steve,

A nice way to show the Friday's theme, a rose which has seen better days. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the rose. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Steve, your presentation and entry to the Fridays Theme of the elegant beautiful rose is as thoughtful as your note. (another one for my collection)
And, of course, a perfect Steve Fry framing.
Kindest regards as always - Monika
