Story

Story: I've often wondered why people stay in situations or relationships way beyond the point of personal or even mutual good; when it's obvious to everyone else that things are just not right. I think I've figured out at least one of the possible many answers to that question: self-deluding hope that things will get better. A hope that's based on fear of change and unknown alternatives and given enough of a glimmer of tangible evidence that hope strives to keep itself alive. A kind word, a well-timed aplogy, a gesture that almost says, "I'm sorry". It's not the kind of hope that gets a survivor through life-threatening danger. It's the kind that lies to you because you want or need to be lied to.

Something To Hold On To

(c) 2003, Serina Jung

 

It's a great day to be alive, don't you agree?

the sun is shining and the air is candy

what's it like over there where you are?

have you thought about me lately at all?

 

I don't know why I call you as often as I do

when everything I know about you tells me not to

but then you speak to me so gentle

you give me something to hold on to

 

no, nothing's new, in fact nothing has changed

I go to work, come home and repeat

repeat day after day

my weeks resemble barren desert dunes

I'm stranded without hope of rescue

 

I don't know why I call you as often as I do

when everything I know about you tells me not to

but then you speak to me so gentle

you give me something to hold on to

 

your tenderness is curel

can't you see

I wait with bated breath for you to love me?

 

I'm like a sparrow in a parking lot

it's free to fly away and yet it combs the asphalt

to glean what crumbs it finds scattered all about

it believes its' satisfied but we both know it's not

 

I don't know why I call you as often as I do

when everything I know about you tells me not to

but then you speak to me so gentle

you give me something to hold on to
