one spark of hope

you’re living
that sad country song
denying its call and comfort
cursing the universe
taking all the blame
justified or not
the melancholy festers
drying up the imagination
stealing all your dreams
but you refuse to fall
fighting all the demons alone
with one spark of hope
skimming through the darkness
guiding you through the muck
you’re breathing
knowing brighter days await
happier songs will play
laughter will ring
one day soon
just as the sun shines
just as the moon glows
with that one spark of hope
