Holding on to Hope

2 Comments

How do you hold on to love?
That ephemeral thing.
Pour it, in every pore?
As ether, inhale it?
Spread it –
Into every cell there be.

How do you hold on?
When mooring ropes
Of bonds you held close
Are slipped off those
Piers of emotion-
The pier dissolves, into
A salty pool.
And you hold on-
To your own heart.
Adrift.
Alone.

How do you stay you?
Who are you?
You ask you.
You find no answer.
You have been consumed
By that ether.

You’re adrift
Your heart – all alone.

But.

Your mooring rope-
Let loose into the
Salty sea…
That churning stormy sea…
You gather that close
As you bob, uncertainly.

You shall come
To
New and stronger harbours
You tell yourself.

Secretly wishing
All the while
That pier, which dissolved

Had been stronger.

  1. “Secretly wishing All the while That pier, which dissolved Had been stronger”
    Or maybe, that mooring rope, that anchor, that tether, had been a little longer
    Or that heart, adrift, alone
    Was made of hard, unfeeling bone
    Instead of muscle and mind, which just absorbs all kinds of love-ether!

  2. Doesn’t it always happen when you are thrown off a comfort zone
    A feeling like a leaf, which caught in a storm,not knowing where it is blown
    random thoughts of hopelessness and a sense of being all alone
    but it will last only till you find your next zone and make it your own.

    Beautifully put. As usual. 🙂
