Can forgiveness come in words?

Can the love and repel be one of the same?

Please set me free on this doubt

‘Cause I see none of that

Please set me free as you rise

Don’t indulge yourself with my crime

I wasn’t good enough, I know that

I hope that I could just ease that living

In not such a dreadful way

Even now I can hear them talking

Looking at the emptiness that’s left

I will close my eyes, ears and heart

As I hold inside

The venom of my existence

The ultimate wish is for you to be happy.

    Your image seems so fitting/perfect....and it is an interesting consideration...."love and repel be one of the same""the more I love you, the less I be loved"? And forgiveness seems such a vital part in love...can it come in words? It is so much more than mere words.....and I for one so often need it...would that I might generously give it freely.

      Thank you 🙂 !!! Well I have to admit the words just came so quickly I wasn't thinking just feeling. It's strange what you can see when you just... let yourself go.
      Best and hope you are doing good.

      Really good this one. The second last line is very evocative, a really strong set of words for a short line. It fits well within a very good whole piece.

        I just felt so down at that moment. But thanks 🙂 I thank thee for your words.
