This is what I must endure.
For I have wronged you.
Betrayed the trust we scowered the ends of the Earth to build.
And if guilt lies in the heart forever
then I am guilty still.
I chew my knuckles and abide the absence of my purity.
Regard the means to some end
Let the pain open you up
swallow you whole
consume your ever measure
until there is nothing left
For that may truly be all there is.
