No Way Out

Blue Indigo, indelible ink
Words written on paper within
No matter how hard I try
I can't erase my sins

My shame is bright red,
My regret the bluest blue,
You said you forgave me,
I don't believe that to be true.

I can't forgive myself
Penance does not appease me
I cannot find the key inside
No matter how you beat me

If you had just been there
When I needed you the most
This wouldn't have happened
If we had only been close

It matters not, for times gone by
Are only mere regrets
I just wish I'd find the way
To find peace and to forget

To accept in my own mind
That I am only flesh
Learn from the experience
And start over fresh

If I can't forgive myself,
Then how can I expect you to?
Why do I punish both of us,
I don't have a clue!

Back to my indelible ink
Back to my blue indigo
Back to the words that can't be erased
I'll never be free of you
