Strangling hope

Hope is what keeps it alive,
hope is what keeps us going,
hate it and blame it,
Hope keeps me coming back.


Hope against hope,
Fighting the tide,
Within me,
Each time, it surges.


It wounds and kills,
Leaving ghastly scars,
Nurse it with love and
Hope, I do each time.


Take a look at me,
I’m standing here,
Just like I said,
Promises, I’ve kept.


Wonder what it is,
That you cant see,
That you cant hear,
Despite my pleas unsilent.


Throat hoarse,
Hope despaired
Tongue bitten,
Heart still beating.


Walk away only to
Return with hope anew
Care brimming from the top
and hope back in the eyes.


Take a look at me,
I’m standing here,
Just like I said,
Promises, I’ve kept.


A word of appreciation,
A look of care,
A sigh of relief,
That yes, you are here


Please read Disappear by Hoobastank before or after you read this piece of nonsense 🙂

Hope is what keeps it alive,

hope is what keeps us going,

hate it and blame it,

Hope keeps me coming back.

Hope against hope,

Fighting the tide,

Within me,

Each time, it surges.

It wounds and kills,

Leaving ghastly scars,

Nurse it with love and

Hope, I do each time.

Take a look at me,

I’m standing here,

Just like I said,

Promises, I’ve kept.

Wonder what it is,

That you cant see,

That you cant hear,

Despite my pleas unsilent.

Throat hoarse,

Hope despaired

Tongue bitten,

Heart still beating.

Walk away only to

Return with hope anew

Care brimming from the top

and hope back in the eyes.

Take a look at me,

I’m standing here,

Just like I said,

Promises, I’ve kept.

A word of appreciation,

A look of care,

A sigh of relief,

That yes, you are here.
