It can bring you up

Keep you going

Give life meaning

Stave off pessimism

But it’s a double edged blade

As I’ve discovered

When you lie to yourself

And use it to cover

Love gone away

Untenable dreams

There is little more damaging

Than false hope it seems



Swimming in darkness

Through a sea i can’t see

Alive but not living

Awake but a dream

Purpose eludes

Doubt marches in

Sure the defenses

Let nothing in
