Longing to Despair

Longing to Despair

A Poem by Judy Basmaji

Known is a turbid affair
when the mind vows to behold
what a heart cannot declare

Little of sorrows compare
to a heart deprived of love
a heart unable to care

One cherished with glory so rare
yet poisoned with indifference
breaks another beyond repair

And the brain refuses to bare
that lacking within a soul
of one so pure and fair

And time and again I swear
that few deserve pity as
a heart that longs to despair.
