Hope has left




And one day I lost something that had kept me alive all this while.
Through troubled times, broken relationships, torn families, grief, losses, despair.
Something that burns within and kept me going. Plodding, wearily, tired, yet never giving up.
Life may come back. Prayers may be answered. Dreams fulfilled.
But today it’s all over.
I am alive.
But, only on the outside.
For hope has left.

i agree that hope does leave sometimes rendering us alone but this is also true that it does come back.
Many a times it only seems to have left but actually it is only cast into VOID.

Beautiful depiction of pain and loss. Hope is a butterfly, it returns to the flower after spreading beauty and love all around. It will soon be back!Just wait.

If you're alive, hope has no business to leave. Don't worry, it is just sulking around the corner. You just have to click your fingers and it will come rushing back. Hope has no solitary existence without the life it clings to:-)
