Absolution

by S s...   Oct 22, 2017


A weary traveler,
one lonely summer,
under the dying moonlight
facing the bitter winds;
I wish I could tell you
how I feel about myself
every time I look into the mirror.

I was young and dumb,
and please don't ever confuse
between these two.

Young; As I fell in love
with your rainbow thoughts.
Dumb; As I cut your soul into half
with sharp edges of my words.

Countless times,
I tried to kill that lunatic
with poisonous depression
but temporary thoughts of
being with you always saved him.

Seeing all my efforts go in a vain,
I buried him within the bricks of silence
because of his unutterable acts.
Now the carpet of character
inside my heart is cleaned.

Perhaps, someday,
you may decide to return home.

Perhaps, someday my forgiveness will be worth your time,
and I may be exonerate from the words
I didn't want to say.

On that day,
my sleep will be as beautiful as you
once again.

    Judging Comment:

    From this poem the meaning of forgiveness is understood in depth
    and with much heartache. The way this poem unfolds and carries
    the reader through with the writer, making every emotion felt
    is so sad yet powerfully worded with simple words. A painful
    episode waiting to be released by forgiveness.(10 points)

    Woah free verse.
    This is probably one of the most amazing poems I’ve ever read on this website.
    Your honesty is so real and raw and I can’t even begin to wrap my head around what the frick I just read.
    I’m a little speechless.
    I hope to god that this wins
