Hope in a Smile

by Christopher O'Sullivan 3 years ago in heartbreak
Report Story

The fickle muse

Working on short time

Searching for a rhyme

Or reason how

I am feeling now

I have been drifting for so long

I thought my life was ro be wrong

Then she appeared from out the blue

And such great desires I knew

Was she inspiration

I had so long forgot

Or was I convincing

She was something she's not

No answer was needed

For she had succeeded

In making this fellow

Desire to be mellow

Vices became shamed

Gave up time for games

Into adulthood

Is where I now stood

I was eager to show her

That I could be a good man

That not a thing could stop me

From carrying forth this plan

Time has since moved on

Since I wrote this poem

I don't have her now

But can't forget how

She made me complete

When life was defeat
