Surrender

Rating: 4.9
I heard it repeating,
that voice in my ear,
and wondered once more
if redemption was near.
It seemed to get louder
then faded away..
No, that's not redemption
I'm hearing today!

It lingers around in
my cochlear womb.
Its muted words screaming
in that vacuumed tomb.
I can't or I don't
Want to hear it out loud,
I guess it's unlikely
to make me feel proud

It's there all the time
with it's deep throaty hiss,
creeps inside my thoughts
like an unwelcomed kiss.
Distraction just fails to
keep it's voice away,
it screams through the night
and most of the day.

It keeps on repeating
demanding a voice,
I'm feeling so weak now
I don't have a choice.
I bit my lips hard,
it brings tears to my eyes,
and although I WAS right..
I will apologise!

I was in your neighbourhood Lodigiana just revisiting some great poems and again found this one. It wasn't that hard to rediscover for it like all your poetry shines day and night. And oh so brightly! Five stars and again most worthy of each. I wish you well and the loved ones around you. Shaun.x.

Apology is an act of great courage while forgiveness is even a greater virtue. A poem that combines both is truly sublime. Heartiest Congratulations Lodigiana, once again. Please enjoy the moment........10

A true entertaining poem, sublimely worded and adorably presented. What surpirsed me is the fact that this poem is a hilarious and a bit sardonic tune. BUT the Song is loveliest, Lodigiana! I have enjoyed very much this crystal clear poem as neverwhere, thinking of all the volcanos exploding, dirty dust comes down and Aussie in fire for months.........A 10 Full Score for the beautiful poem. A well deserved MPOTD. CONGRATULATIONS..
