I am in hope instead of love

Having signed away my proxy

For that treasured state long ago

I can no longer remember

What I thought it was

Or from which idealized fiction

I learned purported truth

All I know for sure

Is that I keep hoping

For stirring crescendos

And reciprocal obsession

Living in hope of happy endings

New beginnings

Unrealized for now

Maybe tomorrow

I’ll fall out of hope

Into love

  1. I think this is the most beautiful thing I’ve yet to read on any site. Thanks for contributing it.

  2. Great command of language in this poem. I love the “out of hope and into love” ending. 🙂
