Confessions


Confessionals
leave me aching,
yearning
to lift the veil.
Unearth the secrets 
from their burial ground
of lullabies that are no longer mine.
A language forgotten,
where humanity and love merge.
Where light and grace dance as one.
Saddled by time,
the burden does not dissipate
nor die.
I told the sun about my demons,
the sun told the moon.
The moon lit my dark nights 
and showed me the way 
to a new dawn.

  1. Very poignant poem, but alas there will always be light at the end of any tunnel to usher in a new dawn, a new day. Warm greetings and best wishes.

  2. I always have to take the card in ...go down the 10 commandments and eliminate murder. Absolution never seems to relieve my sorrow.

  14. I told the sun about my demons,
    the sun told the moon.
    The moon lit my dark nights
    and showed me the way
    to a new dawn..........I really like this stanza because it shows how our natural world can show us the way. Light and peace to you.
