It takes only a moment
to break a confidence
sever a vow
lose the innocence,
Only a moment for
what once was
to cease to exist.
gone in an instant
leaving only the frigid emptiness,
the echo of regret
without and within
a glimmer of light
shines on the guilt-plagued brow
the stale darkness,
lighting once again
eyes too heavy to hope,
restoring what was given away,
cleansing in a flood of forgiveness,
Perfect Love bringing new life.
Only a moment
and redemption has come.

I love the way this poem trickles out the terrors of guilt as sin is committed, and then leaves you breathlessly wondering in the great flood-tide of forgiveness and cleansing.
