    I can not claim what I don't understand
    and understanding is lost
    all there is is hell
    I must be wrong on all points
    for the wrongs I know of
    done so long ago
    I have spent years trying to right
    maybe it is not meant to be
    the Lord defends the righteous
    so I must be wrong
    I have accepted rotting in hell
    and again I offer my apologies
    to you
    take comfort in the fact
    that whatever I was I am no more
    and hell is all that I now know
    again I offer what little I have left
    I imagine we can learn to love
    I don't know
    don't know what you want
    I only know what you've told me
    maybe I don't know that either
    maybe I put you in a situation
    where truth is impossible to find
    you must be a better person than I
    seeing as it is me who rots
    in hell
    I don't know what you want
    or if you want anything
    I don't know much
    understanding is lost
    all is lost
    I have embraced this truth
    and now I proclaim
    the only thing I know
    I think I know...
    doesn't matter
    just know I am sorry
    and again I wish you well
    I've accepted my fate
    and figure this must
    be my lot
    to simply rot in hell
    I figure I deserve it
    so I hope you accept
    my apology this time
    but hope is simply
    one more thing
    lost and gone
    may you find joy
    and fulfillment

    Skrybe, first I must say how refreshing it is to see another of your works (haven’t seen much of u lately), you were one of the first poets I began reading on Destee and it’s always a pleasure.

    This piece is quite poignant, yet no matter how so, the beauty and skill of your gift continuously captures me between the lines. The words, thoughts and questions in this piece are strikingly touching, feeling this.
    Also, missing your famous signature………

    Thanx for your kind words sage. haha
    but there is no gift just words
    it's all used up. So they're probably
    the last. If I'm lucky...
    there are many skilled gifted
    and talented writers here
    who still love poetry so
    I wish ya'll the best.
    Peace to ya.
