Loose Woman

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.
