Nowhere at all

The part of me
   inclined to the worst case
   because hope hurts so fucking much
   i see all the "nopes," the "can't"s, the never works.
That back part of me
   the unquenchable child
   the hopeful one
    the one who never shuts
no matter what
 no matter how badly things are going
  or what's been said to quench hope
All she sees is the looks
   the touches
  the pet names
the caring.
And all she can feel is hope.
