You will remain unforgiven, always

You made it hard for me to live

And tortured my soul

Bludgeoned like an uncooperative captive

I was trapped in something old

How was I to see

That someday you would change

And do what you promised not to me

But for her and keep me out of range

This pain washed upon the shore in the sand

I carried it in the summer sun as far as I could

Out from me like a pilgrim’s burdon in my hand

I long for you to take it from me, yet if you should

I still would not forgive you

My love for you has grown…from the darkest days I’ve known…out of the blackest soot from my soul, born of heartache that took its toll, I am what breathes inside, I am love’s solemn bride.

Is this Goodbye?

Why do grievances rest within a creeping silhouette?

In time, I know, it’s me you’ll come to forget.

The burn of summer’s heated argument, and the lie of a lover’s true scent

I sense drifting between here and now, and yours and mine.

Caught up in this moment, our love story is coming untwinned.
