holding hope

I tried to hold the hope of you at arm’s length 

not wanting to let go 

leaving distance in piercing of the heart 

and now I’m stuck 

unsure of the next step 

my arm is tiring 

I can’t just let it fall in shatter on hard reality 

yet 

I can’t go around forever 

only one usable hand 

while the other clings 

to the razor’ edge 

of hope
