I forgive myself completely

You always elude me

Even in daydreams .

I need softer kisses with

Lips flushed and cheeks blushed

And your name on my tongue

Finally being sputtered out

And your voice among the sound waves.

But you often elude me

Except in nightmares

Where I am reminded

Of the monster

Inside me.

But there is a new trend

I am learning

New perspective

New mountainsides

As I give out a battle cry

I decide

My head will be

A temple,

My forgiving

Heart its holy land.

Your name will

Not provide guilt

Any longer.

I will write the verses

Of my own bible

And learn to forgive myself
