Forgiveness

Since he took a life precious to her,
she demands that he
not be allowed another day of happiness.
That shackled and solitary,
he never again be comforted by a smile.
The only friends allowed
to visit him be loneliness and misery.
With his two enemies,
depression and regret, given a key to
his every waking thought.
That in dreams, the joy of childhood
remains forever a stranger.
Let melancholy’s cacophony play in
his head for eternity.
Little realizing, her bitter bewitching
carries a hefty price.
Anger unassuaged by forgiveness,
she too is sentenced to
share the narrow confines of his cell.
