The Charges Leveled

They charged me with my sins

real

and imagined

Sentenced me to a lifetime

of solitary confinement

in memory

Handed me the knife of remorse

wickedly sharp

mirrored surface reflecting

my innocence lost

on an endless loop

And then told me not to bleed

on their clean floor
