Redemption

was it a sin or was it a crime

what was the wrong committed

so much with intent, damaging gravely

that all eternity amassed

in seeking a forgiveness

which was never mine to give

whose door do i knock

to beg and ask

at night when no one is listening

in the darkness

when everyone is blind

made deaf by the sound of litany

thirst stays trapped

choking at my throat

unable to escape my lips

no more asking for correction

i abandon hope

i fall to my knees

i close my eyes

i imagine to drink from redemption
