The Sombre Exhale

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , on June 16, 2014 by dc

The sombre exhale,
The gentle throb of guilt
And the moment you know
That you’re wrong,

The heavy swallow,
The lowered shoulders
And the slow, measured dance
Of the sunlight

As the air echoes shame
To the beats of contrition.
