In The Heat of The Moment

In The Heat of The Moment

A Poem by OhSnapShley

In the heat of the moment
you spilled your guts
then attempted to pick
the disgusting mess up
but what was said
can never be forgotten
even if it is the heat of the moment
when everything but anger is forgotten

Time stands still
mouths and hearts drop
like your walking through The Valley
or crossing seas on foot
entering boundaries that even you never thought
yet somehow we ended up here
in the heat of the moment 
time standing still

I see your struggle
and I feel your pain
so the mess I help clean
and I forgive you again
in the heat of the moment 
when time stands still
I can only imagine
the pain that you feel

In the heat of the moment...

Wow, powerful piece. It seems so me the character in the poem keeps being betrayed, but forgives time and time again. Cleaning the mess up, forgiving... Those first few lines were genius though, "You spilled your guts, attempted to pick the disgusting mess up" I loved that. Thanks for sharing!
