The Perils of Forgiveness

the perils of forgiveness

can not be undersold

as one cannot possibly

and in this betrayal

their entire universe is

shattered into a cloud of



yet one must seek penance…one must reveal the misdeeds acted out

if not, then

every moment you will see and understand what facade is in play before you

and she will watch you crumbling

and feel powerless in the process,

perhaps believing it is because

of something they did


Truth may write your obituary

but Hell allows the liars to

fester in a life dead long before
