Cruel Abundance

An emotion as cruel as hope is habitually found in abundance

What obscene promises does it hold today? What masochistic tendencies does it grasp at?

To what extent does it stretch? What does it want to entertain?

One cannot afford to believe those breathless vows But one always repudiates that notion It is too sweet to resist So saccharine

One must wonder Must aspire Such a necessary cruelty

What sweet domination does it conjure How does one grasp it Confine it

Hope is such an encumbrance But it is the prerequisite

Hope is best served with elbow grease. I love the saying of. "Hope you get better." This is beautifully and cynically written. It does my old twisted heart good to see such realistic writing in the young. Great poem!!!!
