Zero Equals Hope

Zero Equals Hope
                                                      by michael cahill

all is new as love
becomes my new persona
cradle my young soul
desire fulfilled
envelops every pore
forever smiles
grand images of dancing souls delight the moon
honey sweetens the vast expanse of the milky way
illusions of constellations come to life
jousting in the heavens as Orion celebrates
knights parade in tribute- galloping grand tornados!
luscious are the stars that finally bloom in color
melancholy creeps up under ground unnoticed
nothing was spoken- nary a word that I recall
only a chill borne on a breeze swiftly vanished
pray tell, my love, is something wrong?
quell my silly misgivings for I worry
remembering a time before love when all was not bliss
should I not go with you where you are off to?
that has always been the way of us
understanding escapes me as I see you leave
venting fire until none is left- left with fading smoke
wondering what happened to love's perfection
x is my new name
you slayed my identity
zero equals hope



There is no point to love unless you go all the way. If you lose you lose. It may come again. It is worth it. But, as thrilling as it can be when you find it, nothing is as empty as losing it.

This is an A-Z with some short forms all in free verse. In... this style. Minimal punctuation.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
