BLEEDING KNEES...

















On shy chameleon legs….I ones came…
Before thee, a heartless flame!
From a muttering tongue…my pleas oozed…
But…alas!.. your ears had long dozed!
Bundles of sin…to confess I hold
Drunk of my fill…of every cold scold
Will you let go….as now I plead?
Shall I be dismissed-a millipede ‘playing dead’?!
On my bleeding knees I now crawl…
Thirsty for  relief….not a suicide brawl…

Your feathered scalp…I ones explored…
Surrendering each strand….how you implored!
Sipping our wines…of joy and delight…
But, alas! …lightening struck…with blessings of blight!
Bitter fumes condensed….stripping your haggard breath!
Emotions executed…. torn heart cursing to death!
Will you let go…..as now I scream…?
Shall I be tossed- a dry leaf on stream?!
On my bleeding knees I now burn!
Offering my ashes….ready for about-turn…

Hmmm....a personal reflection....on how sometimes we feel overburdened by our own  emotional loads....and crave for relief... by swallowing our pride....owning up....and saying "I'm sorry, please forgive me"
