  • Last night, you crept up the corridor,
    Kinder, older.
    I caught the scent of regret.
    “I just wanted you to know,”
    You looked so ordinary.
    Forgiveness turned your lust to dust
    “I just wanted you to know,
    I’ve lost my appetite for innocence.
    My shame has finally filled me full."
