DESPAIR

The trail of a solitary tear
on a soft, golden cheek.
A silently, searching eye
and the sweet solace that it seeks.

A deep, desperate gaze
from a lonely, longing heart.
A despondent, crying soul
and a hope it had held from the start.

A hand, held out, beseeching
a face, in final despair.
A look of resignation 
through lank, bedraggled hair.

The trail of a solitary drop of blood
trickles slowly along the edge,
of a cold, un-caring blade…
