Bleeding words into vacant spaces
ink running like the flow of tears,
staining paper with pen that chases
broken dreams and escaping fears.
Purging forgotten sins into paper
dreaded words and thoughts appear,
the beginning leads to forever
raging emotions that constantly sear.
This haunted soul seeks redemption
from the darkness that is corrupting,
innocence taken by temptation
searching for the path to forgiving.
Pages now filled with secret sorrows
spoken by a quiet soul tormented,
the pain inside still slowly grows
will salvation ever be granted?
