It’s Sunday and I’m feeling a bit creative, so here’s my first attempt at a poem.
I have no idea what inspired this one, but it formed itself in my head and I scribbled it into my moth eaten notepad.
Would love and appreciate your feedback on this. As I say, it’s my first attempt.
I have sinned in a terrible way
The deceased deserved more
Yet, for now I am still alive
Albeit behind metal doors
I never meant to cause them pain
I had lost all self-control
Dear Lord, please forgive me
And have mercy on my soul
Their images are still clear and fresh
Each one lingers in my mind
They were just getting on with the lives
They were forced to leave behind
A glint of silver
The flash of a blade
Their life blood seeped out
From the wounds that I had made
And so, today is my reckoning
My maker I shall meet
But I know where I am going
For I already feel the heat
The straps are secure now
The buckles are pulled tight
And as my veins are injected
Daylight slowly turns into everlasting night
Please let me know what you think. Thanks and have a great Sunday!
