Nothing but Guilt

Poetry By: nathanmarc12

Guilt : A feeling that can be fatal if it is unbearable.

Once again

I looked at the wicked deeds I've done

Driven by lust and greed

Once again

I recalled the immoral acts I've committed

Guided by sinful intentions

Repugnant, repulsive, I feel

but no matter how remorseful I am

how much regret I possess

I will repeat the whole process


I seek for purity

but filth is all I am

I long to be righteous

but evil is my nature

I yearn to gain back

the innocence I've tossed aside

I thought I could have it back

but it eluded me

because it is wise enough to know that I'm dirty



can never cleanse me


can never make me whole

All that is audible

are whispers of condemnation

All that is in my heart

are nothing but guilt.
