Bread Of Remorse

Bread Of Remorse

A Poem by Sunflower/Sara Kendrick

Psychology write for a contest


Eat  thou not the bread of remorse

For its taste is bitter, tough, coarse


From many wrongs of yesterday

As it has aged, dried__ changed assays


Replays of when it was just baked

And of those whom heartbreak suffered


From puerile stunts and brainless words

Discord that filled that loaf's innards


Now moldy, indigestible

This bread remorse, abominable

Nice analogy for regret. Clever use of the poetic form to express what leads to remorse like mold on bread. Your first line is the best. Would like to see the rest written in that same liturgical style. Like a Bible passage in tone and syntax.

Nice write.
