repentance [fragment] (20170416)

you have my apologies, of course
truth transmitted directly from source
but too small, words too few
to make much difference to you

my skin a fractured eggshell
spiderweb damage the betraying tell
no need for hell to punish sin
i carry my eternal flames within

  1. I cannot even begin to tell you how stunning your last lines are, and I’m not even talking about how the words rhyme so perfectly. I’ll carry those words all day today. Tonight, I’ll read more of your poetry. It’s good to be back visiting. I’ve missed you.
