Hope’s Demise

It was beautiful then
Vibrant colours bursting to life
Bringing hope to existence again
Like the gleaming edge of a knife

Now every colour has faded
It feels like I have failed
For years I have waited
Watching what once was being paled

Desperately hoping for change
Even though I know it will never come
It feels so strange
The pain becoming so numb

Now each day darkens more
And every passing moment a part of me dies
Crushing me right down to my core
And in the end all that’s left is hope’s demise
