trust does not reside here anymore
it has been betrayed countless of times
all that is left is a sceptic
miserable and alone

joy does not reside here anymore
it has been dampened and crushed
all that is left is a sad being
tearful and forlorn

hope does not reside here anymore
it has been shot down from its perch
all that is left is a pessimist
uncaring and on his own

love does not reside here anymore
it has been bled dry by infidelity
all that is left is a creature of hate
angry and torn

and now we see a lovely creation
reduced to the lowest of low
so distrustful, so sad,
so hopless, so unloved
