Guilty…

It was the story of her life…
Stolen moments and memories…

All those choices she made…
Became secret documentaries…

Where only her eyes filmed it…
And only her heart knew the truth…

Of a once pure soul tainted…
Unrecognisable from her youth…

A time where balance existed…
Right and wrong was clear…

Until the voices started to whisper…
And the blurring began to appear…

Out of sight, out of mind…
What they don’t know won’t hurt…

But as the gravity grew stronger…
The dark pull left her inert…

She was unable to think straight…
She was unable to walk away…

Lust was like a drug addiction…
She was held under its sway…

The excitement of deception…
And the ease of execution…

Left a taste without exception…
There was no substitution…

Tracks always covered up…
No clues for the detection…

Thrill seeking in the moment…
No care for self-reflection…

But judgement is upon her…
They’re speaking in fork tongues…

Her punishment is awaiting…
She hears those distant drums…

And she knows the crimes committed…
Year after guilt ridden year…

Will forge the chains that bind her…
So she walks toward the light in fear…

She knows that everybody cheats…
She knew that everybody lies…

But she didn’t expect this feeling…
And it’s too late to apologise…

  1. From vantage point near three score years…
    Despite guilt ridden doubts and fears…

    I cannot help but to wish for…
    A reconciliation clear…

    (Ditto on Nandita’s comment. Nice to see you.)

  2. Falling in love with your writing all over again! Suspense and darkness is still strong, and I love it! 🙂 Gotta pick up your book some time soon again 😉

    How’ve you been? 🙂 I’m slowly returning to WordPress, hopefully for good this time ^^

  3. It’s been a long time, it’s good to still find you here, and I hope you’re well. I loved this post, wonderful as always. It’s difficult for me to explain where I ran off to (though I didn’t run). There’s a post this past January on my site that explains it all, 2 after that as I try to climb my way back (the first in January will explain what I mean). I don’t know if you’re still following me or not – 290+ followers, and I swear I’ve never known who more than 10 were tops lol, and I’ve never received more than 30 likes, so I go back to my “phantom followers” page, I wish they’d all unfollow me! LOL Anyway love, I was very happy to find you here, do hope all is well, loved your post, and if not still following me, hope you might consider it as you were in the past.

    Love & Blessings – Kimba
