Rather Daunting (Taunting)

Was there ever such a daunting task
as eliminating what composed such space
in your universe
from the forlorn trenches in your mind?

Lightning breaking the silence
absent of words
illuminating your cowardice
in its unapologetically bold reply

Oh darling—

…how she’s amused with your wandering hope…
