The Audacity of Hope

The foolishness that holds me close to you
Would seem to others as a waste of time
Instead of seeking out a life sublime
I wallow here, stagnant and sorry too.

I cannot tell you why I cannot leave
Except an unseen force restrains me here
The choice to go even to me seems clear
Yet my soul firmly to this mess still cleaves

The thought of leaving gives me pause
I cannot answer for the cause
I’m still trying to cut the rope
From which I hang in pointless hope
