– pleading for absolution-

I hear the neglect…

the shame in my sweat…

and how I turned my heart a-

way. I feel lack of care…

touching me nowhere…

and here is where the price is

paid.

~

Forgive me… my darlings,

all you 88 keys.

I’m saddened… I’m sorry,

you were my remedy.

Bitter in the ears, bitter on the hands,

but I know I am less of a man if

I don’t say sorry… my darlings.
