    It’s Easier To Find Hope In Tragedy

    We talked again today.
    Flashbacks left me in a blissful dismay.
    My heart in your hands to rot and decay.
    So tell me, what will it take?
    For it to feel like it did yesterday.

    These halls are getting smaller,
    crammed with assumptions and expectations,
    but I can still pick you out from these empty faces.
    Like picking out light from the darkest of places.
    Your ray of confidence cuts through me,
    like depression complemented by a blanket of anxiety.
    All these promises never held true,
    and those three little words,
    a lie, no…
    a gift from me to you.

    Every kiss that used to end these fights,
    is now sold with fears of cyanide.
    And the silence becomes a daily routine,
    a quick fix for a much-needed dose of serenity.
    For every word said feels like it’s force-fed back down my throat,
    a debilitating “I told you so”, a habit I’ve come to know.
    And those stares you fire off at me,
    breed enough hate to kill off the world a hundred times over.
    So aim before you shoot sweetie,
    cause a miss would be something of a tragedy,
    but a miss would still be the end of me.

    So it’s not quite a win-win situation,
    but we both know life’s full of tough decisions.
    Don’t fret though good news is but seven words away…
    IT’S EASIER TO FIND HOPE IN TRAGEDY,
    allow me to elaborate.
    We can always find some good when all is bad,
    A strand of acceptance when rejection is all that’s left.
    Even God seems to shine with a brighter light,
    When the Devil’s perched by your side.
    So when you feel like you won’t survive the night,
    just know that through my eyes…
    you will always radiate an innocent light.

      sometimes its hard to let go of things...it's like pulling a blanket over your eyes so that pesky little light at the end of the tunnel doesn't keep you up at night...to hope is to allow the possibility that you may fall to live...every up has a down, and sometimes rock bottom doesnt have built in stairs. so people think eff it, i can't get hurt anymore if i just stay here.. i use to be like that...expect the worst, so when the worst happens there are no disappointments or heartaches. history also has that funny way of repeating itself... my ex never could learn from his mistakes, and at some point, remembering the good times we had wasn't worth it anymore, rather it was like rubbing salt on the wounds. Just from my own experiences, i'm not one that could ever find hope in my tragedies very easily...er, at all really. Ya just deal with the pain, except it, and learn to live with a past your not too fond of.

    take care

    Well, that is a mighty wry observation; it's easier to pinpoint the light when only one candle is flickering in a grave (situation, that is). And you do seem to view this light in your rearview, as it were, in an almost naive manner as you remember 'the good times' and allow them to shine regardless of how abysmal things are in the here and now. It's too bad you're the only one of the pair that comprehends the light is there. Hmmm...

    I suppose that makes you 'hope' to her 'tragedy.'

    Nice easy going retort to a volatile, cyanide laced scenario.

    Take care.
    Bill.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
