Faded Transgression - Poem by Brandon Chiles

Shadow’s fell across the land
The world was rent asunder
Forgive my love, and heal my sorrow
And to my grave I shall return
To stay forever after

My death of love
A sad memento
To wash away my sin
In blood of deepest darkness
I kept this secret
And lost the urge to win

A single heart remains
Flesh and yearning till I see
A reminder of an end
To live like fallen angel
To sin and to condemn

“Black” said the sparrow
He watched the deed undone
A kiss that faded into dream
A nightmare for all to weep
And still the thorn is in too deep

All the dreaming foretells
Of sweet success
But the vision of beauty
Haunts me till this final step
Her heart to win
Yet still I fear and
Walk on shreds of failing hope
Written by Benjamin Krouskop
