Haint of Hope

Oh weak heart
why to you deceive
a determined mind?

Though I am truly
and finally grateful
to be free from all
that was toxic and false
moments swell within me
where I miss all
that was sweet and true

Surprised by joy
peeping into my life
seeping into my soul
My unhinged heart
is stalked by
the haint of hope
lurking in a lagoon of longing

Oh blighted heart
why to you contaminate
a fertile mind?
