Just Kiss Me Back

A Poem by trainwreck
"

Judas Iscariot. Not my hero, but he's never talked about.

"

I'm stumbling through my streets,

Remembering,

Just remembering.

You were here!

You walked with me,

I was your sinner,

And you were my breaking dream.

 

We can see you weaving;

Did the darkness of your deed

Infect your gray soul?

Do you want to let go?

We can hear you screaming,

But you are not seeing

What is clear.

 

I'm searching for my start,

Aching heart,

Pressing dark.

You were light!

You loved all of me,

I wanted blood,

You gave love,

And I lost the chance to be anything.

 

Throw your money on the floor,

See if regret saves you from your

Own Darkness inside.

You think you can hide?

We'll supply the rope

If you leave us alone.

Leave us here.

 

We gave the noose,

                             

And put it around my neck, 

 

                     Redemption slips away from you,

 

But all I wanted was forgiveness.

So. This was inspired by Judas, betrayer of Jesus Christ. The italics are the Pharisees, who hired Judas to help them kill Jesus. No offense intended, and no, I don't actually like Judas at all.

As I read this I thought about Judas but then I thought naw that can't be it. Amazing though, really. So full of emotion as I'm sure that night was like.

This was very creative, and I liked it a lot. I also loved the format. Judas Iscariot is/was a very interesting person. Great job.

ooo concrete poetry - love the structure - I like that you took on a more taboo biblical name to explore - "we gave the noose, and put it around my neck, redemption slips away from you, but all i wanted was forgiveness" - great stuff here! nice!

I love this. You really captured the emotional feel of both sides. I can feel the utter sorrow pouring from Judas' side.
