How unflinching,
Is the bittter pain,
Of deep and sorrowful,
Inner shame.
It nisther forgives,
Nor dains to relax.
But holds unbending,
It's prisoner to facts.
To torment,
For years on end.
It knowingly,
It will not forget.
But dares it's victim,
To try and overcome it.

Dains is like scornful binevolence, it's complicated.

Is dains a word you made up? I just googled it and I looked it up at Are you sure that's the correct spelling? Also, scornful benevolence doesn't make sense, it's an oxymoron. :)

You have amazing talent, and good imagery, though I've noticed that you seem to have a terrible time with synonyms. Perhaps you have improved since your last poem posted to here?

I like this... It's really rings true with me. Shame is something you can try to ignore, but it will haunt you and haunt you until you forgive yourself. Even the small things that I shouldn't have done keep me up some nights in pain... Well written, it really touches the heart.

Why thank you! I myself am not very fond of most poems I write. For I hold to the harsh truth. And actualy I don't know that I ever forgive myself for anything. But I do forget mostly after a while. I think writing helps me to recover sometimes from the meloncholy things of life. You worded your coment very well.

Shame is a relentless mistress who locks you in her tower and reminds you time and again of your mistakes in various forms of torture. Trust me i've been there, and she is so cruel.

it's human nature to feel shame, it comes with the territory of being a teenager too.

Thats posible. But this was definately my fault.And trust me...not easily forgiveable. When I said I could stop though,I was actualy talking about writing. I don't why it's not acsesable through,more by this auther on this poem.But this is not the only one they put on the website.
