lingering hope

I tell myself
no more moaning now
just learn to live with it
like others do
but until
the lingering hope
leaves me
I continue
to think
maybe
just maybe
I’ll get up in the morning
and it will be
gone

I almost welcome
an end
to this hopefulness
for acceptance
is surely better
than hopes crashed daily

I just need
to know
the truth
