Guilt will plague your conscious as surely as the night falls, until you amend it as surely as the sun rises upon the dawn. For guilt finds an ear ~The Lily of Lough Neagh~


 Ponder

 

Whilst I ponder in the night

Ere the salts of earthly flight

Drape doth billow in the dark

For this gave me quite a start

 

Flying Dutchman in my pipe

Tamped it down rightly tight

Cherry smash it tastes quite nice

Smoke doth wisp a ghostly sight

 

Evermore…

 

The whisper came upon my ear

Could it be that she appears?

 

Eleanor…

 

Cannot be for like the ground

And my pipe I tamped her down

 

Evermore…

 

Dropping pipe upon the floor

Stood before revolving door

 

Eleanor…

 

How you cursed me day and night

Nevermore your breath to fright!

 

Evermore…

 

Pulling scratching at my feet

Below the floor dead eye is seen!

 

Eleanor…!

 

Engulfed in fear I cannot scream

This has to be a horrid dream!

 

Evermore…

 

Blankets tossed upon the floor

Sitting up I scream no more!

 

Eleanor…

 

Heart it thumps within my chest

Shall I never get the rest!

 

Nevermore…

Guilt not only eats away in your dreams, but also when you wake and you have to live with yourself until you right your wrongs.

A different style for you my dear lady Lily. But, this is a good example of how guilt leaves you sleepless.

Shades of Edgar Allen Poe! One of the best dream poems that I've read. You write about a pipe as though you were my grandfather. Much enjoyed.
