Please Bestow Redemption, My Love
and post notes and photos about your poem like Lu Loo.
Fictional poem written only for this contest.
I have wronged you, my love and need to be redeemed.
For our bright light has dimmed, this is not as I dreamed.
So I shall linger in lavender fields thinking of an apology
to make you realize how much you really mean to me.
I shall beg, plead and say sorry for the pain I have schemed,
and be the wife that you always longed for me to be.
I crave redemption for my transgressions devoid of hope,
I have learned my lesson after seeing you dreadfully cope.
Please hear my vindication and bestow forgiving grace
so that we may come together and once again embrace.
When I noticed I caused you to fall down that slippery slope,
I realized how my actions and words made you need your space.
So I wander this wilderness alone, though I made a mistake-
I’m truly sorry, my sweet…for opening your heart to break.
