tied to that same mistake

a plural of blame to myself, self-infliction.
my fingers pointing at my own, aggression.
not understanding, only compromising.
i’m tied to that same mistake, held hostage.
i’m tied to that same hell, burning on and on.
not pretending, only compromising.
i’m tied to that same mistake, not confronted.
i’m tied to that same hell, unforgiven.
