Haunt Me No More


You come into my dreams,
I cannot stop you,
You enter the corridor of my most inner mind,
Plundering, trampling on my hopes of joy.
You, oh long shadow of what claims to be a nun,
A nun, who judges one
From whence they leave their mother's womb.
Judge not me- the fatherless one
But judge thy own self.
Does it bother you that I am the sin that came to life?
Well, I am.
Yes, I am
And I will always be
Me

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow

But mark the fate of faces;
