It Never Completely Leaves

Shame leads
to the ache,

then the fix,
the high,
and the crash,

reuniting me
with the shame,

on an endless loop
to the grave.

  2. Thanks, and what a coincidence... that's the title of my memoir "Well Said, and Well, Sad."

  4. That is the cycle. Like Brian says, we can break it. Very powerful poem.

  5. shame can be tenacious like a sticky sweet and seems to have a circular nature - but i agree with bri as well - we have a choice how to deal with the old mistakes we made.. luckily...
