Hope On Hopeless Love - Poem by Isaac Helms

I would have walked the extra mile
Tell her I would wait a while
Do anything to see her smile
Yet I only broke her heart
My stupidity tore us apart
We were doomed from the start
I say I have given up on myself
Put myself in bad health

I want her to be mine
I guess friends will be fine
Even though I still try
I have no idea why
A wish that will never come true
Failure no matter what I do
Only see her with another
Why do I even bother?

I torment myself to hate her
Yet she is my only cure
No matter how hard I try
Nobody is able to explain why
I cannot stop my feelings
This emotion could bring wonderful healings
I try to save us too late
She has a different fate
There is nothing to save
I will bare this pain to my grave

I hope on what is hopeless
I hope on hopeless love

    A true work of love.
    I've been there, actually I'm still there.
    Keep hoping Isaac - and keep writing.

    So heart felt. Hope on hopeless love a wonderful title. To release the heart from a love that ca not be for now.
    Keeping hoping, one never knows.
