Suffocating Hope - Poem by Celeste Morse

Pain, Resentment, Fear,
Reaching for a light of hope -
Only finding darkness of mixed emotions;
Coming in unbearable waves,
Rising until I suffocate.
Gasping for air,
Yet only finding the ache
In my heart increasing.
Wishing to do something -
To seize this ache;
Yet still the pain
Spreads to loved ones,
To those who cause this pain,
Yet still though I reach for
Because I know
There is something better;
Better than this rush of darkness
Filling my future.
And yet I ache,
And wish not awknowledge the fact
That there is nothing to do but hope
Until I suffocate.
