The Murder Of Hope

Step on it good and hard,
make sure it is dead.
Hope under heel,
grinding into powder.

Slide that knife across skin,
hard and deep to be sure.
In a ditch like a missing person,
Hope lies bleeding.

Salt that wound and burn it,
coagulating under your heat.
Blood and dirt combine,
this sickeningly sweet murder excites you.

Toss the weapons aside,
no caring if they're found.
Your murder was metaphorical,
no reprisals are forthcoming.

Full Circle

I turn my back
for just a moment.
I can see you
and the tears in your eyes.

I turn again
just for a second.
I can see you
and the smile lighting your eyes.

I turn once more
and stay.
I can see you crying
as I keep you in my arms

forever.
