Guilt With No Redemption

Vermis Cibum

Nightly progression of my forget me nots
Lessons I studied which others forgot.
Things I remember locked in my head,
Debts unforgiven, pleasures sought instead.

Pills taken nightly to lessen the pain
Mostly ineffectual, the memories remain.
Self-inflicted torment, wounds that cut so deep
Bleeding for eternity, causing fitful sleep.

Prayers seeking forgiveness apparently unheard
Soul trapped with memories of harms occurred.
Ironic indifference justice unsatisfied,
Unlocked recollections, repeated visions unanalyzed.

– Clarence Holm
