"Unconditional"

Haunted by mem'ries

Forgotten

Followed by spirits

Impatient

Walking in shadows

Unyielding

Tortured by failures

Unspoken

Fearing the sunlight

Revealing

Filled up with sadness

Consuming

Burning with longing

Impassioned

Appealing to darkness

Rejected

Broken by conscience

Condemning

Weeping for the past

Remorseful

Groping for comfort

Relieving

Clinging to mercy

Unfailing

Forgiven through love

Unconditional

Author's Note: This is the most abstract piece I have ever written, bar none. It has absolutely no rhyming, are you not proud of me? In case you missed it, this is sort of about the cycle of sin and forgiveness. I was hoping the end would subtly suggest that to you. The structure is really something that I made up, although I stake no claim to its creation because I do not know if it has been used before, which it probably has. But the italicized words are meant to sort of summarize the preceding statement, or cast a different light on it. Take from it what you will. By the way, if "unconditional" seems to not fit in with the flow, that would be because it isn't supposed to, I wanted it to stand out from the rest of the poem. Reviews are very much appreciated.
