Unpardonable sin


Can't mend a broken glass

Cloth of conscience, red blends invade

Over shards of memories unable to pass

Wine's stain of spilled dreams will not fade


Last supper, a challis of wine

Kiss of forgiveness

Self pardon not divine

Salvation lies within us


Around Judas' neck burned marks

tied with guilt's rope

Put out the sun extinguish its nightly sparks

Blow out the candle of hope

    The candle of hope must never flicker out, that would be an unpardonable sin, as ever beautiful lines that from start to finish. And where there is hope there is also light. 🌹

      Again I thank you my friend for your most kind words. They say that hope is the last to die and so the unpardonable sin being to not be able to forgive oneself hope dies and the candle is blown out, being the last line. Your remarks are so appreciated.

          Come now, let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

          Tremendous work. Powerful and foreboding.
