We #2

Forgiveness and trust
Are entirely different things
Quintessentially Pandora
The untouchable is touched
Raving demons released
To the leer
Of the punishing world.
What's done is done.
But can you
Will you forget?
Grasp for the one
Beam of hope
Did it fly away
With the rest?
Was it ever there at all?
The apple has browned
The shadows lengthened
Our appointment ends
Unless you call them back
Is it too late
For a simple apology?
