(Aston’s Stanzas)

She wanted to plead

For forgiveness

For love



Tears of shame

Bared her self-hate

Oblivious of the smell

Of the earth and rain


The fog of mystery

And hushed emotions

Stood between them

The sky dead and overcast


She had broken him

She had betrayed them,

Had poisoned her loyalty,

Their past, present and promises


She was a small fly

Caught in a mesh of thorns

Needing to speak only three words

But โ€œI am sorryโ€ felt so insufficient


He was everything to her,

Many colors of passion

Her whole world,

Her magic


How could she say all these things?

The quiet was hurting her,

His eyes were cold deep

And quizzical


(RhymeRula’s Stanzas)

Envisioning the requiem for a reconciliation,

Forsaken by a cruel distance,

Exhausted as she pleads for forgiveness

Towards the ones she neglected,


The same rhetoric repeated through every phone call,

Your “sorrows” are not accepted here no more,

Nothing to show for in a world full of karma

Except being cursed with a swollen heart,

Rupturing to the point of no resurgence,


Limp in her dying moments,

She stared at the full moon as it graced multiple presences,

Only the illumination would capture her last blink,

Finally relinquishing a dying apology that never came full circle
