Mistake – #NaPoWriMo Day 3

My heart feels a jolt.
No, I scream. Silently.
Where’s the undo button?
My hands shake, trying to find it.
I know there isn’t one.
Not again, I cry.
Another day,
Another mistake.

Is this guilt or a sack of rocks?
Lying heavily on my chest.
Following me around wherever I go.
Can you see it?
My anguish
Can you forgive me?
I probably don’t deserve it.

It dulls with time.
One by one, the rocks fall off.
But their indentation remains.
I hold on to it.

And wait for my penance.
Never again, I whisper.
Of course, only until I reach
Another day,
Another mistake.
