There are certain things we can forgive ourselves for, no matter how reckless or ruthless. They may take long, measured bouts of self-reflection, deep introspection and absolute openness; an agonizing acceptance of our own failures – our very humanity.
Then, there are dark things that are unforgivable and sit still, - stagnant and lurking. Dark things that follow us to the grave, casting shadows over everything we do, over everything we touch.
Is love, for us, an absolution? Or is love a cage, a seductive trap?
How do I progress forward when attached to this weight? How do I not let it color my decisions, command my very existence. It contaminates all that is pure but yet itself, is cast from the purest cloth. Love, made only of light and ethereal flutterings.
Maybe I am that dark thing – that unforgiveable force.
Love is certainly a poem, but love, for me, is also a sickness.
