Promise and compromise

Promise and compromise                                                                      

I made You a promise I could not keep,
left intact but compromised

like an outed spy behind the lines.
A promise made naively, doomed to failure,

made of love and ardor, I could not keep,
my separate existence being the inherent contradiction,

the broken promise, itself a compromise
to the integrity of the One True Whole.

O child of God, the human being is a compromise
between the immortal and the nonexistent.
