Hold On

They pull and drag you
Clutch and grasp any thread
Fervid gesticulating passion
Implore your emotions
Stoking the fire of feelings
Looking for the rage and anger
The trigger of disillusion
Waiting with bated breath
For hope to slowly seep out
Leaving you hollow and empty
No guileless motives to this
They do not wish to stand alone
In the desolate plain of desperation
Disseminating drama their defence
To the solitude of disaster mind
But I beg of you
No matter how out of place
No matter how discordant
Hold on
Hang on tightly
To your optimism
The light that you know
Without explanation
Without understanding
Is there
Ready to burn bright
To illuminate
To heal
