No more than I deserve

My poems are reflections focussed on the satin

Backcloth of night. Focussed when the world is

Quiet and I may better feel the pain of a heart

That once beat for me and I let down. Love now

Lost and cast into the abyss of time wherein I

Rummage for answers that will not come


Link me not to love but to chagrin. Failure to see

Love for what it was and be glad of its company

Glad of a girl who took me to her heart, pressed

Me to her breast and lay in my arms while my

Thoughts slipped away to another place, another

Night, another bed


Thus, I am truly lost and confession no more use

Than decoration. Confession can't turn clocks back

Can't do anything save persuade the gullible they

Have by some miracle obtained forgiveness but from

Whom? Come, feel the pain and you will know there

Is no forgiveness, my loss is absolute and the price

I pay no more than I deserve
