Lessons

You told me there was much you could teach me

But if one of us had a lesson to learn

It was you

I was shackled by regrets

Guilt of which I could not rid myself

Deeds for which nobody but I could forgive myself

So you pledged to help me

To free me

Give me the means to start afresh

Live the life I would not allow myself

But it was you that needed saving

From the web of lies and deceit

That you had spun so tightly around yourself

Even you could not escape

Nor did you even realise you were trapped

Until it was too late

You taught me that there will be guilt

We pick up along the way

But need not carry to the end

Whilst you also learned

That there are acts

For which there is no forgiveness

Webs from which there is no escape
