Rinse the Soul of Guilt

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wash/awash.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Bonus points for using both. Enjoy!


I would you not the bane of my nightmares
For I see the moon howl in your face
Bats fly in the sorcery of your false embrace
I have no need for your affections
Steeped in own fulfilling intentions
Conditions metered out to their attachment
Awash with insincerities of duty bound
I bid you release from any tether due
And wash my hands of guilt denied to you
For I have veiled myself in it
Like a widow grieving her peace and life
I strip myself of the black shrouds of your misery
And turn to celebrate myself henceforth
