Looking for Absolution

It happened again

I let my ego, my passion

Suffocate me with self obsession


To take what was given

Without question


I’m drowning in narcissism

To the point of being numb

I don’t know what I’ve become

My thoughts so gruesome

In my heart a chiselled chasm

And my soul a shadowed phantasm


Can there be any redemption

A way back from abdication

For a wretch lost in translation

Will someone light a beacon?

On this abomination

Awaiting absolution
