"Every secret of a writer's soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works." Virginia Wolf


Waves roll in,
Reminding me,
Of my sins,
I am not free.
The waves get higher,
The deeper I go,
Tight like a wire,
My body is sinking low.
They soar,
Above my head,
As they roar,
The water turns red.
Will I ever,
Make my way back?
No, the world is black.

This is about how when you feel you have sinned you feel like your drowning in the guilt of it all. Please comment!
