“Pro-misses” (poem / poetry)

Your word is your bond, a reflection of self,

Don’t promise me one thing, then do something else,

It’s frustrating, being taken by surprise,

Down an unwanted path, because of your lies.

That’s multiple times now you haven’t delivered,

On your word, after one lie, I should’ve figured,

It no longer matters, our connection’s due south,

In future, when I make plans, I’ll factor you out.

So, as many of you might know, in anticipation of my soon to be released 3rd book of poetry, I launched a 3 week sale on Monday gone, offering 60% off the price of the digital copies of both of my published poetry books.

3 of my eBook distributors had a facility in place to schedule and automate the promotion’s start and end, yet Amazon, don’t even have this capability! After speaking with one of their Customer Support Operatives the weekend before launching the discount, they said if I completed a price-match request, they would sort it for me.

Guess what, yep, once again, they’ve let me down! The worst part is, I spent so much time putting the request together, with all the details and links they required, just to be shut down because they felt like it! Also, for those of you who use Kindle exclusively, I can’t give you guys the saving!

Thank goodness Kobo, Barnes and Noble and Apple Books came through for me, or I’d be really mad! So, for any future discounts or promotions, just know that greedy Amazon most likely won’t be included … rant over! I thank you!

It’s funny though, as this piece could apply to other situations of being let down too!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
