I see hope longing for my arms

Will it ever reach me?

I turn my head looking away

Because it hurts me more than I can say

It jumps into my arms

I embrace it half-heartedly

Not wanting to let go

Not wanting to get lost

I feel it in my veins

And I let myself scream

Because I am afraid

Afraid that it will hurt again

Hope is what it says it is

Dreams, but never fulfilment

I can keep hope

But it will never give me truth
