Social Confessional

I may have sinned, but I won't ask your forgiveness. The truth is I've only tried to emulate you, Acting without scruples in your manner, But I still stand in awe of you: How you blaze a trail of ruin, Leaving flowers to wither and vegetation to rot. You don't possess a conscience; Perhaps that's... Continue Reading →

Frankly, My Dear

I've tried so hard to hate you, But every time I muster a mote of loathing Or contrive the basest slander against your character, My tongue ties into knots or I stumble; And I know that for all my wishing, I could never bring myself to defame you, Though it would be so much easier...

Were I robbed of innocence---... Continue Reading →
