Despair Comes Knocking


When despair comes knocking
There’s no one home
Gone out shopping
And not alone

Despair comes knocking
Every damn week
I try not to care
But he still leaves me weak

But despair comes knocking
Every single day
I keep shooing him off
And sending him away

Despair comes knocking
But what does he want?
Is he here to stay?
Or just here to taunt?

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
