Sometimes it's better to forgive and let it go...

He drew the drapes shut,



No, abruptly,

Empty Darkness

Arrived on time

And sat down

Spreading itself 

Throughout the room;

If only

Forgiveness could be

So tight,

So quick,

So abrupt,

Spread itself so thickly,


I wouldn't lay here

So isolated,

So alone,

Sleeping by his side

In the Dark.

Fine poem. It's always best to forgive and let the onus be on the other, hoping you'll find empathy in their hearts eventually. At least you will have done the right thing.Unforgiveness is a slow spreading cancer.

Reviewed by Lisa Hilbers
When a person is haunted by things they can't seem to let go of, it not only disrupts their lives, but all that care about them as well. Hopefully somewhere in that darkness, will be that one glimmer of light that manages to catch his sight.
Sad but strong write.
