Shattered Hope

You hear that sound?
That sound of something breaking?

I myself didn’t know what it was
but now that my tears have run dry
and my heart has gone numb,
I know exactly what it was that broke.

Hope.

That little hope that grew
deep inside my heart,
amidst all the insecurities and self doubt,
in spite of the darkness that I was within.

That hope of getting better.
That hope of being loved.
It’s all shattered now.
I have no hope left in me anymore.

      I wrote it imagining a mother-daughter relationship which never went right for either of them.
      But I think you can say that this is a modern love story.

    Sometimes all breaking sounds aren’t bad lovely. It says a heart must first be broken in order to be opened, and that’s where hope comes from…inside the heart. When you write, Hope is never shattered lovely.🌹
