There’s No End To This Guilt

by Black Fury | via

You have my back tonight.
I cannot look up at you,
For I am ashamed,
Too ashamed, embarrassed,
Filled with guilt and regret
For the life I let you live,
For the darkness I kept you in,
For the incoherent voices you heard all day,
For not once thinking to find you a way out;
Teach you a way to communicate..

I am a horrible sister,
A disgusting person.
I am sorry, so so sorry—
I could never say
It enough—
You deserved much
Better than what
You got..
