Forgive Me


I hurt

I ache

I burn.


Too many clocks ticking down time.

Too few heartbeats

To atone for my crime.


I scream

I cry

I yearn


Shadow of a whisper of what I forgot,

Pushed behind closed doors,

Left to rot


I shudder

I want

I need


The masks I used to hide a sin,

The camouflage of smiles,

Let justice begin


I whisper

I tremble

I bleed


Held in restraints of judging eyes,

Who still condemn me,

Me and my lies


I mourn

I shake

I die


Forgiveness awaits me at the end,

Angels vindicate me

I betrayed a friend


I go,

I leave

I fly.
