LOST HOPE

LOST HOPE

not knowing how to ferret out the love that was truly his

he balanced on the edges

teetering became too much

fleeing the demons he could not quiet

he succumbed

leaving behind everlasting chaos

  1. I don’t know if the person you are writing about here is real or fiction or if it’s someone you know, but I was immediately reminded of the recent loss of Robin Williams. Sadly, your poem is the end result for too many, but I have to believe that talking, that connecting with others is a balm that can help. Thank you for writing and sharing this.
