Hope

Poems

I hope not talking to me

Makes everything better

I hope my voice disappearing,

Makes everything quiet

I hope my absence

Makes you present

I hope you find peace

Without my love

I hope whoever you talk to

Is better than me

I hope not seeing me

Feels good

I hope not kissing me is a relief

I hope not making love to me is ecstasy

I hope there is happiness

In pretending I’m not alive.

Hope is not love.

Love is hope.
