Lost in Purgatory

Forgiveness passed to another
Lost in winds of transcendence
Reaching into a nothingness
Wandering in a void
I pause...
In regret for what I was

~~~~~

Forgive me for
A life unlived...
For turning away
When I was able to give

~~~~~

Loose me in my sin
As I wear it upon my breast
Flamboyant in its mark...
Beginning to bleed it maroon river
I am Barren for those to see
My abortion
...of an inner me

~~~~~

Close your eyes
Errant one
Look away...
Do not do
...As I have done
For your spirit will
Become an anomaly
Of what I have been

~~~~~

Selfishness festering in its angst
Diseased within its membrane
Spiraling in an abyss beyond your reach

~~~~~

Desire and wantonness
Spearing it ugly head
Leaving lust inside its foreboding dread

~~~~~

Wanting what I could not have
Taking what I could not receive
Foolhardy in my redemption
Waylaid in a lonesome dream

~~~~~

Dressed in a erroneous belief of life
Smiling a ostentatious smirk
Drifting in a lament of sinuous lies
Reaching pinnacles back dropped in a false vision
Of yesterdays hallucination

~~~~~

Stand before a timeless annulment
Segregated within compassion
Divided upon a river
Where Charon awaits
A predestined ride
In search of my immortality

~~~~~

Water swirls in its muddy murk
Reaching for my immortal soul
As I fall to a stream below
Drowning perpetually
In a lost purgatory
Drowning in ambrosia

~~~~~
