Castles of guilt

Updated on March 11, 2013

Guilt can burn the bridges

When your directions lost

Foolish words will feed the flames

And pain will be the cost


Guilt can build castle

To lock your heart away

Within those walls a prisoner

With the games guilt likes to play


It can eat into your reason

To tell you why it's there

Guilt can be so unjust

But around because you care


So slay unwelcome deamons

Corrupting soul and mind

They have a taste for beauty

Eating gentle hearts they find

      Guilt is some kind of beast, isn't it. Lurking around and eating at your soul. Nice poems that sums up the beast.

      Jon, this is awesome! We must dispel the demons in order for guilt to not be allowed in the forefront of how we conduct ourselves. Hearts are tender yet strong. Puff up the love and resist the guilt!
