Took off the halo

Like me better as myself


Loose woman

Heart wrapped tight


in delusion.  The wind

Heard kept secrets.


That shattered you

& your illusions


A lovely past

Passed away


Do you mourn my innocence?

I mourn your kindness.


Undeserving, home alone

His socks atop my fridge


Karma dripping

from my lids.
