guilt takes...


self-satisfied
leaps from
the tallest
tower

lands on the soft downy
cushions of
blame

is consumed
readily
if not
greedily

(the way you hate yourself-
a matter of
pride)

Bon, okay. I came by last night but I felt too tired to leave any thoughts. Here is my attempt tonight :)

I like the idea that guilt is a visible entity. The image that it is self-satisfied, therefore pretty confident, to be leaping off from the tallest tower and landing on soft downy cushions of blame is quite an interesting view to ponder. I personally think it is a neat depiction.

It makes me think about how invasive and powerful a feeling guilt can be. It makes my mind go off, something I like in others' writing as you know :)
