Poem #12: Requiem for the Soul

Note: The poem was originally posted on my Patreon account on July 21th of 2018. I am currently posting a new poem to my patreon account each day for patron exclusive reading and on this blog one week later for public viewing. If you’d like to see these poems when they are first put up then please consider pledging to my patreon page.

Of the sins in which I am guilty
my blade lies upon what follows.
On which I bare the burden aplenty
of endless remorse and sorrow.
From the depths of despair I realize
regrets of yesterday tomorrow.
Their Heaven is my Hell in watch of scorning eyes
too bitter yet to swallow.
On my knees in the darkened light
In shame I pitiably wallow.

The soul of the one I love I sold out to the devil’s maw.
The grievous crime of which I bare no punishment yet the guilty conscience draws.
To which I seek repentance yet my very presence burns.
Does she know how I truly feel, does she still viciously hurt?
The weapon of the soul cuts worse than any blade.
To misuse such power is deserving of the grave.

My literal everything that I treated much like myself.
Like garbage, though she was not deserving while I was.
Any further attempts to reconcile or to fix one’s broken pile only bare the curse of the flames. I dearly long for her yet was never worthy of her presence. A broken mind beyond repair to even the divine yields no recompense.

I offer a prayer that I may one day see her again. Until then, I offer this requiem for the soul.
