Bathos

crying-statue

Everything’s fallen
Like a climactic letdown
Into the void of disappointment.
All that was meant to satiate—
Bound to propitiate—
Has collapsed under the weight of expectation.
An existence propelled by faith
Is now defined by this revelation.
All that was meant to be that never became,
And all that was obtained,
Hollow and naught for meaning,
Has driven me to my knees in the street, weeping.
