Why call me

after you are gone?

Responding to a void, waiting,

the only evil remaining in my box

is hope.

    Hope is good but can also leave you hanging if you wait on the wrong person.

      Hello Stephen, I absolutely agree. For a better application of the idea of hope being the last thing left in Pandora’s Box, check out “Pandora’s Curse” by Jack Du Brul. I do not completely agree with this idea, but I like it. I am more of a “Shawshank Redemption” type — now that is hope for you!

    A lot of truth in those short lines.
