Life & Death

Torn ~
Wanting to feed the life
Yet choking on its breath.
Numb ~
Emotion recognized yet denounced:
Feigning nonchalance.

Tears of denial fall
Yet are absently dismissed.
And still they burn in their
Path of descent
~ Scarring the soul.

And what consequence will be suffered?
~ Before forgiveness is granted (if at all…)

And will repercussions be faced?
(As penance for my sin...)

Or will the torment of the act
Sufficiently suffice:
Continuously reminded by the
Guilt that cannot rest,

Tucked loudly in the corners of my mind...
