Hope Lost

I cried myself to sleep tonight
I know I had some hope last night
Stashed and crumpled in a ball
This hope I hid in case I fall
Down the hole I dug last time
Screaming, crying, lay in grime
I now know what I have to do
Grit my teeth and pull me through.

The light inside me dims each and every
Breath, pray have mercy
Teach me how to live, to survive
How to love life perfect, it’s not mine.
