the thing about hope ...

... i didn't realize at first .... until this morning ...
why my dreams were so hard to shove back into that box ....

... it's the hope ... not the dreams that became strong and
plump ... but the hope ...

... i find that it has to be stuffed back in there as
well .... they're connected and ... it seems that one can't
live without the other ...

... shoving the hope back in that dark box is what hurt so
bad ... and now i feel berefit without it ... i still can't
seem to get that lid to close ... it's like a suitcase that
you stuff too full and have to sit on the lid to get the
latch to shut ....

.. it'll still close .... the hope and dreams just need to
be smothered for a while in the cramped darkness ... then
the fight will be leeched out of them and the box will
close for good ...
