A Riddle

I am one

Who begs forgiveness without a sound

Repeatedly yet with no hint of success

An attempt to shun despite the emptiness

To gather without celebrating body and blood

And in foriegn territory when she is gone

I'm all by myself without a single sole

Then forsaking mankind is the answer to my prayers

And I am one

Quick clarification - Is it indeed supposed to be 'sole' and not 'soul'?

Quick answer - indeed. Though it does make for a better story the other way.

the sunlight or the Sun?

Hey there andromeda, am afraid my answer is not as poetic as your response. Thanks so much for the compliment. Please give it another go.

Hey DD - neither, but do see where you're coming from. This one's, well, let's say I'm a little worried. Want to say more but maybe will try to give it a bit of time first.

make me think of various religious services, or a 'last supper'

make me think of hermits & sinners

Obviously, I'll have to keep thinking. -_-

not the one but that is a likely "story of the poem" but really misdirection, sorry (he says ducking at the same time). Hope I didn't spoil the fun.

Who begs forgiveness without a sound

Repeatedly yet with no hint of success

An attempt to shun despite the emptiness

(looks like a supplicating gesture when opening, keeps anyone from crossing it)

To gather without celebrating body and blood

(joining 2 sides together)

And in foriegn territory when she is gone

(ref. to a ship after it's passed thru?)

I'm all by myself without a single sole

(no one can walk across it)

Then forsaking mankind is the answer to my prayers

(Ceasing to serve pedestrians & vehicles in order to accomodate a vessel.

This is a stretch, but I think I'm on to something here.

Hello mojobrain - I really like and appreciate your thought process and answer above. Makes a lot of sense to me but this one was more of a "play on words" than a straightforward "what am I". Hope you're not too disappointed with my answer.

Damn, Wilson. Great solve.

I agree, DD.

A Scottish greeting to you but no need to type any more. Since you are of course correct. I had alone for the second to last but like yours as well. Nicely done, Wilson.
