Contrition



Contrition

I see the sun, now that I have seen what life could have been like if I had only won.  

I hear the rain, now that I have cried forever without feeling the pain.  

I feel the wind, freeing me from lies and demons; they've followed me for years, all seasons.  

I feel the cold now. My feelings are frozen from the life I've chosen.  

A lonely, heartbreaking, unwritten letter. How come only unanswered feelings matter?  

There's a flute, a piano, and a calming string. There's nothing like dying in the bloom of spring.

I compose poetry and prose about the disappointments of life; dishonest people we come across; crushed hopes and expectations; the corruption that lies within everyone, but also lighter stuff.
