Affixed in Immorality

October 11, 2012 by AJ Huffman in Poetry

I do not believe
in your sanctity.
Even though I gave it to you.
On my knees.
In the wavering breath
of our very first dawn.
What a picture.
Almost a memory.
Almost a dream.
Too bad.
It’s not real.
But it is amazing,
how our minds choose
to redecorate the truth.
Before our lips
can spill the ugliness.
Into words.
That could never be swallowed.
By any mind.
Or not.
