Forgive Me

Forgive me, oh please, forgive me; the error of my ways
The weakness of that failing shall forever mark my days;
Mistakes now seem so bold in the day of light reflected
Easily would have been naught, had all dots connected
Thus to any point other than the one where my mind strays

How was the path intended led so very far astray?
Your sole knight in shining armor tarnished beyond dismay
Wholly destroyed the one love that I should have protected
Forgive me, oh please, forgive me

May sweet mercy be yours to find and grant to me someday
Your heart was never something to be treated so blasé
Never knew that this heart of own could be so affected
Never knew that this deep pain would be the cost collected
Your love was all I had, and I threw all I had away
Forgive me, oh please, forgive me


Trying my hand at a Rondeau

    • Sorry, just your generic “he messed up, she kicked him to the curb and now he wants back in”. Though now that you’ve said it, I can kind of see how that line of thought would work. I like it.

  1. I like the longer lines when one wants to say much more…it is still a
    rondeau and is effective here in getting more particulars across to the reader……well done on forgiveness, a complicated subject.

So? What do you think?
