An apologetic verse
The dark side of beauty
Have I expressed the worst?

The depths of my soul
Have I shown my pain?
You who misunderstood

Judge me harshly
These tears that dry
Upon the pages I write

An apologetic verse
The ink smeared & stained
The journey of my life

My Life, My Sorrow

The truth lies bleeding
Have I exposed my heart?
An apologetic verse

The depths of remorse
Have I made a mistake?
Trusting the muse

The betrayal
The light exposes me
The dark envelopes me

The depths of my soul
Has it frightened you?
You who have misunderstood

The tears I weep are real
The page is stained blood red
Donít judge me harshly

Dale this is great - it soooo describes the last poem I posted to the Den... It lasted less than a day before I erased it because I simply um over-exposed myself so-to-speak!! This describes a line of tension in every poets expression, I think, because poetry bipasses conventional communication restraints to share something of one's soul.... and how much is too much???
A thought-provoking write, thank you!
