thin hope

thin hope, wanting what I can't have
needing less, pretending I'm free
sad heart, covered in a false salve
my death, while I am still alive
seeming, to be something you're not
playing, fast and loose with my heart
loosened, from the ties, tethered rot
benign, the actor plays his part
something, broken inside of me
freedom, false still I reach for thee
unmasked, the woman from the child be
stolen, this life on a path unseen
careless, with my hands cupped in yours
fragile, tender faith, gentle rose
looking, for what she does not know
beneath, the earth she cries no more
