forgiving

left speechless by her silence

I pause to recollect older lessons

trapped in stained mirror

Snapchat flash, do I sense a dash

of tragedy?

sprinkled within her supple bosom

is the voice of angels, and a song

to bring satan off his throne in tears

I was that devil, and when I heard

every facade of strength caved in

struggling to admit my character

warped in the presence

I asked for forgiveness, I asked

for another day

not because I deserved a moment more

she has faith, I have pain

we don’t look past our troubles

but within

to see that we’ll always be scarred

sometimes scared

but never broken

One thought on “forgiving

  1. Simply superb.
    I love this bit

    left speechless by her silence
    I pause to recollect older lessons
    trapped in stained mirror
    Snapchat flash, do I sense a dash
    of tragedy?
    sprinkled within her supple bosom
    is the voice of angels, and a song
    to bring satan off his throne in tears
    I was that devil, and when I heard
    every facade of strength caved in
    struggling to admit my character
    warped in the presence
    I asked for forgiveness, I asked
    for another day
    not because I deserved a moment more
    she has faith, I have pain
    we don’t look past our troubles
    but within
    to see that we’ll always be scarred
    sometimes scared
    but never broken
    Because it’s so relatable and it is true.
