Confessions



They say confession is good for the soul
The one on the receiving end might not be so
Inclined to believe that line
Whose soul is it good for?
To lay your sins on someone’s shoulder
To bear your shame and transport
It around with them
Innocent ears have to hear betrayal
Eyes gaze deep into the face of evil
Remorse doesn’t pay the for the debt created
Now the valley walked through is more
Perfidious thorns and rotting roses
Great you with sadness and bewilderment
My how selfish you are to bare your soul
At my damn door
Anger is only now beginning to make its rest
Upon my heart that has endured way too much shit
How dare you invite me in to your turpitude?
Now I feel dirty like I was the one to cross
That threshold of iniquity
Scrub my skin till it’s raw
I can still smell the deceit and treachery
The stench lingers in my nostrils
Lies, lies, lies,
Confession for the soul is good
Just keep your damn secret take it to your
Grave and inconvenience me no more
With confessions
