NapoWriMo1 – Self Confession

 

My eyes are wide but blinded by light

So I raised my hands to shield them from the glare

My fingers were transparent with fright

I dropped to my knees, my hands still in the air

 

I closed my eyes to ease the hurt and pain

Pressed my hand’s heels deeply into the sockets

Still the harmful rays of light did remain

Sending sharp shards and tears like blinding rockets

 

Finally I spoke the words I dreaded to hear

Profoundly stated in a not-so-holy book

The black clothed scrap of it I found in the rear

Searching where before I had also feared to look

 

Speaking the last words to complete the chant

I pulled my hands from my face despite loosed fears

Hoping that my wish had received a grant

I was still sure my face remained stained with tears

 

Unbelievable, not sensational at all

I confessed in a phrase lacking a story

That allowed me to stand without pain or a fall

I simply admitted that I was sorry
