Cursed

On rare occasions when
things go as planned
I dare
not expect
anything -
nor take them for what they are
fearing they will once again vanish.
Another let down
in constant struggle
of harried life.
I shy from the blight
of Pandora's evil -
I dare not hope.

Dreams make present bitter living.
