Remorse

“Remorse”

The screams began again.  It wasn’t a dream

this time.  I heard them, walking, I saw

them, the shadows, reflecting from the granite

walls.  That stare.

The remorse.

It was never her fault.  Tied an bound,

Helpless.

I thrust the blade.

In and out.

Blade of flesh.  Deep.  Hot.  Bleeding.

The screams began again, so sweet.  So young.

The feeling.

The air filled with damp musk, shadows rose

and fell.

Ghosts incarnate.  Distant karma.

Flames danced.  Caged.  I reached but no longer

felt.

The screams began again.

Silence.

Sudden.

Eye wide…open.  Darkness,

Remorse.
