... Smacked Wrist...

by Peter Hunter

smacked wrist

a tentative footstep

hesitant - almost fearful

heart stopping moment as realisation dawns

and the full reality is revealed

my guilt all my guilt

regretted and fully felt

so will the earth open and swallow me

such is the shame I feel

bad, bad ,bad

so where do I go?

what is my punishment?

where, where do I go from here?
