Is tired of this blackened world
with its poisonous vines invading
us in our dreams.
Hope is an empty
void a desolate belief.
Pandora’s box was empty.
she released all those evils including hope
into the world and they spread among
us in the air that we breathe.
We are the epiphany of darkness
our souls harness the pain of the weak,
feeding on the promise of hope.
Hope does not exist,
only the evils of darkness that seeped
from the box leaving behind
a dark abyss of nothingness…hope.
