Hope Fails

I learned today
that hope fails
crushing my aged soul
into pure despair
for the only thing
I ever truly needed
but never deemed
worthy enough to have
slips further out of my grasp
with every day that comes to pass
how can I possibly
find a way to survive
when all I've ever felt
could actually complete my simple life
will never belong to me?
No matter my capacity of hope
a dead womb cannot heal
no matter my frenzied prayers
precious life will not thrive there
no number of impassioned wishes
can make this empty shell
become a mommy now
hope fails me
