Fire and Hope and Other Things

Maybe these wasted spaces
between desperation and loss,
in the folds of all things lost,
there is hope that is unlit.
It will
take your belief
and your love
to light the hope that hides itself,
waiting for those
worthy of its help,
those who are strong enough
to handle its determent
and its failure.
I want to find the unlit hope
and light it on fire.
