I was afraid. I was ruined. I was damned.
My only redemption was found in finding offense at a sexual joke
and keeping my legs forever crossed.
I was visited by shadows
but they melted away
Perhaps my sins were too mediocre
for the Devil to be bothered.
I belonged nowhere, to no one
and then you came.
You say there are pieces of you still broken
Deep throating God
wasn’t all it was cracked up to be
Still I found beauty in your ugly
A sliver of peace inside your chaos
But you could never be a saint
You could never be a gentleman
Not in those boots.
