Mistake (prompt)

A long tale of sin,

Grains of hidden pride;

Grey scars on white skin

That I need to hide.

An empire of lies,

Under a betraying mask;

A very convincing guise

But a very hard task.

You don’t really know,

The bad mistakes by me;

The regrets that follow,

I hope you can’t see.

Hidden under guilt,

The emotions start to rot;

Broken sword and gold hilt

Is all that I’ve got.

Tired from the fight,

And losing myself to me;

I don’t know what’s right,

Why can’t I still see?

    1. It’s an honour to hear it from you
      Your poetries are so good that I have stopped commenting, thinking I’ll have to write the same thing again and again
