Wicked Mirage


I can almost see it

The vapor of hope

An illusion at the edge of despair


Sinister tricks of the mind

Both elusive and unreal

It’s a wicked mirage


Succumb to the struggle

The die has been cast

The end draws near


Yet, I can almost see it

That vapor of hope

It taunts the dying dream

And I don’t know how to let go
