Spring

Hope perches on a branch in my heart

waiting patiently for spring to come;

She looks out of her broken window

wondering where the cold comes from.

 

Love is a tired old woman in the

depths of my soul, fatigued and dismayed;

Not knowing what should come naturally,

she sits in the dark afraid.

 

There outside an empty corpse 

love tries to breathe life into me

Almost unwillingly, hope accepts just

enough love to survive, just barely

 

Because all that is within her

knows that love ends with pain.

the voice inside reminds her that no one

can ever take away her stain.
