If you
are forgiving
to my omission
of carving your name
eternal upon my flesh

then I will
be forgetful
to the distance
you divined to draw
your own deceits upon skin

that wasn’t mine

as I forget you completely.

    Ouch! I hesitated to click ‘Like’ but, given the deadly efficiency with how you’ve cut to the chase and the highly effective and scathing brush-off, I had to relent and admit I admire your poem “Forgiveness”. Honesty has prevailed 🙂
