Our Day

IMG_20131205_073233Hear my confession.

Let me speak of regret beyond measure.

Banish the darkness

     and swift, pure agony 

          of anxieties unspoken.

Give me your eyes,

Your ears,

Your lips.

Write my name on your trusting heart,

     seven letters scribed in tears.

Absolve.

Forgive.

Seek to forget.

Let us turn the page on this night

    and seek out the sunshine

        just beyond the horizon.

Can you feel it, my darling?

     Can we hold it?

          Or will our day slink off to its eternal end?
