Kill Hope

I’ve come to the inevitable conclusion
One of us must die
No longer can I feed off your asphyxiated delusion
Of watching miracles shower from the sky
You’ve made a mockery of me
For the very fuckin last time
No longer will you humiliate me
Like a culprit being punished for a crime
I was wounded
Broke in spirit
So you intruded
With promises incoherent
You lent me an ear
And a shoulder to cry
Forced my heart to hear
Without me asking why
You picked me up from my misery
Washed my flesh
Shared your home
Fed me from your wisdom tree
My knowledge clean and fresh
You made sure I never walked alone
You gave me what I desired most
And nothing of what I’d need
A parasite dining off its host
Fucking my life until I’d bleed
Sharing visions of what’s to come
Manipulating what I see
Free my mind you’ve made numb
This is the way it has to be
The only question left is how
Suicide or insanity
You should come and take a bow
Show the world your vanity
Have a swing
With me on this rope
Let them read what I bring
Let them write
Let them sing
Let them decipher this message
This is how I killed hope.

Hope can come to us in many different forms and at many different times.... just because it comes along is it really what we need.... or is it morphed and transformed into some new kind of grief...
