Sweet Confession Tide

Sweet Confession Tide


Sweet briney trickles o’er my steps

Waves swill all sign here I have been

Draws misery below to ocean depths

Salts the wounds inflicted so obscene

Leaves my soul anew, fresh and clean.


Quintain (English)

    Heaven knows how I missed this one, bruvver. An innovative title to denote sweet cleansing by the big briny. By far (and I mean by VERY far) the best entry I've seen to date. Good luck, bruv mine. I'm rooting deeply for you. Licia ^__*

    Salt was placed in woulds indicted by whipping in order to add to the suffering. They had no idea that it sped up the healing of the wounds. I enjoyed this piece Richard.it is a treat to read a new poem this morning.
