Perpetual Abjuring

On my defeat
Down on my knees
Bathed by your light
Drenched in my tears
I close my eyes and come upon
This temporary understanding
This momentary healing
This short-lived consciousness.

This transitory realization
That could help me progress
But that I will abandon
As soon as I forget.

This passing sense of sympathy
This ephemeral urge for forgiveness
That we will soon forget about
As fast as another misfortune misunderstanding occurs.

I want to heal as long as I’m feeling I should wish to do so
I want to forgive as long as this feeling occupies my soul
After that, let it burn like it always has, let it all rot to the ground
When my pride closes its doors we’ll have to wait for the next insight to abound.
