Hope

by Yasmiera

Hope, you sit outside looking at me

Peering as if shyly through lashes

Not wanting me to know that you see

Looking back out the window at thee

Hope, there you are again so pretty

Shining, twirling and spinning around

Never do you show any pity

Crashing, spiraling down to the ground

 

Hope, why must you always come right back

Staring at me, I know you are there

I feel you, my heart wants to attack

Waiting for that fissure again here

 

Hope, I want to hate you, send you away

You snicker and come closer to me

The window to my soul has your sway

Ripping me to shreds again today?

 

Hope, so relentless and sweet, shall it be all mine?

With a mixture of bated breath and fear I wait

Each time I hear that one indeed it is divine

My heart sits suspended, while you decide its fate

 

Hope, how long do you think this time I have to wait?

    ‘Hope, I want to hate you, send you away
    You snicker and come closer to me
    The window to my soul has your sway
    Ripping me to shreds again today?’

    That’s beautiful Yasmeira! Hope is one bitter-sweet emotion.

    I had been waiting for your posts for days!

    This is a very powerful, very emotionaland very passionate writing.

    For me, I had to read it out loud to get

    The effect.

    Beautiful and Bittersweet that is how I would describe it.

    That was inspirational-for Hope is everlasting-they say…well done my friend! I always hope for the light to shine-and it has shone brightly on you-don’t give up-the firetrucks are just round the bend (Alanis Morisette)
