Sooner or later, I become the Confessional;
hearer of the Sin,
giver of Absolution so that the
healing may begin.
Caught in the Compartment
I cannot get out or in,
separated from the tasting by the thin
Too afraid to partake,
too sinful to resist.
If she in the shadows offers Revelation,
will I desist?
