here's a funny joke- nobody speak nobody gets choked

Its wrestling with an emotion unheard of
A guilt that has been burned up,
transferred up and stirred up.
 
An abandonment to an unknown promise.
So loyalty turns into the memory– abyss.
 
You no longer have my word,
truth spoken,  truth heard.
I am detached from your world.
Words disillusioned and swirled.
 
Not attached to the words, that slip my mouth.
My moral compass doesn’t point due –south.
I still love what is you, my thoughts are askew.
 
I’ve ruined not only me, but the name of you.
I bow my head for forgiveness, and my words
of impulsiveness.
 
Im sorry for the evil that spurred from my tongue,
I am naive and young.
Not pure as I pretend to be,
Guilt, I wish to be set free.

We need your help

Unlike many other websites, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep access to poetry as open as we can. Growing and maintaining Poeticous takes a lot of time, money and hard work, and the revenue we get from advertising is almost nothing, so we increasingly need our readers to fund us. If everyone who reads our pages, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. Support Poetiocus from as little as $1.
