Sometimes I think 

I think myself into an abyss of grief and longing

Into the waters of forgotten 

A grave dark and dreary

And I see what becomes of me

And after a while I've given up

So I swim alone through the trenches

That have swept up so many

And every time I see a shimmer of light

That glitters down through the inky pool

I do not swim forth to it

I float past it and deeper until it is gone

For I know not to trust 

Anything too good to be true

Too bright to be truly glorious

I know they are a mirage

Of what once was

An illusion of an eager hand

Wanting to pull me out and breathe life back into me 

That I trusted once

And was betrayed a thousand times

So I simply swim away 

Back to the abyss where creatures like me call home

And I don't have to worry about hope anymore
