Sacrifice (an acrostic poem)

Silent repentance was her way of focusing on her sins

After a night that will live in her memory for the rest of her life

Certainly she would never tell another soul what had happened

Really she wished she could just lie to herself that it never happened

It shouldn’t have happened

Fantasies were supposed to play out in the imagination

In time they would evaporate under the harsh light of reality

Currently that harsh light just exposed what she had done

Everyone should be able to see it, that’s why she gave up so much to keep it hidden
