Forgiveness

What will
you forgive
from this pen?
blatant lies
blatant truths
sugary
sentimentality
washed down
with rainbow flowers
and cloned love verses
droning on and on
with the pretense
of uniqueness?
and my lies
I pass off
as truth
that I believe
but know
are lies?
what about
the truth you don’t
want hear
like a fly buzzing
in your ear?
My anger roaring
selfish conceit
self promotion
spiraling into self doubt
self loathing?
Fairy stories
reaching toward
the easiness of childhood?
vain attempts to
capture beauty
as if beauty could
ever be captured
or
sorrow
flowing
over
over
over
What will you forgive this pen?
