The Colour of Hope
by Gwendolen

Green is the colour of hope,
at least that's what people say.

When I first met you I wanted to believe
that I'd found another ally, another friend.
I even dared to dream of more,
dared to believe in love again.

It was all a lie, wasn't it?
You betrayed me right from the beginning
and it hurt more than I ever want to admit.
I hate you, at least that's what I try to tell myself.

But every time I see you again
I begin to doubt myself.
I hit you, hurt you
because otherwise I might kiss you.

Green is the colour of hope
but there was never any hope in your eyes.
