A Begging Sinner

Grazed knees
press against
numbing marble tiles,
my head pushed forcefully to the floor
by a shame more powerful than gravity.

My tongue tying itself in knots,
confessing my sins
hundreds of times,
but you please yourself
watching me suffer
tears streaming
down my humiliated cheeks.

Before you
I remain kneeled
repeatedly begging
for your forgiveness,
as you are the only place
that my soul calls home.
