Hope that's yet to bloom- Off the top of my head...been a while

Updated on June 16, 2013

Hope that's yet to bloom

Prosperity; It's bare to me

It's a worn heart; and skidded knees

It's the brush off from reality

It's the vivid loathing; the darkness I see

The stitched up fragment of my memory

I'm crafted with bone; a pure design

A fractured hope composed of time

The clock ticks with a rigid rhyme

Caught by the empty thoughts of mine


A still of words held in the air;

You know them as a simple prayer

I know them as salvation's hand

When it seemed simply like a time to go.


Hope has a way of linking deep

A gentle touch embraced with sleep

A lullaby never meant so much

Because waking up meant feeling more

It's these times; we soon expire

Becoming fuel to damaged fire

Cause as hopes slowly consume

We're left as hope that's yet to bloom

      Enjoyed reading this. There's always hope. It can't ever be fully consumed unless we allow it to be.

      Greatly appreciated, thank you. It's always nice to receive feedback , i could potentially shorten the title, would require some thought, I often like to tie my poems title to the way I end it in the writing

      The greatest prosperity I have ever known or experienced is in the hearts of people and friends I care about. That is what I hoped to find in your poem here, and yes - the seeds of it are there. It just needs a few more.

      Hope does have a way of "linking deep" just as you say. This is a nice poem. Nicely written. A gentle hymn in hope for better things...

      Tweeted and enjoyed, and perhaps a small suggestion as to the title. I would shorten it to what it ought to be. Let the poem find its way.

      You really are a great poet. :)
