Traitor

traitorous_allegiance_by_llen29-d4rngco

If you could grasp

My innuendo

Would we

Lie down together

Captive in

The licentious swell

Of our undressed egos

*

If you understood

The fragility

Of my trust

Would you seek

Favor over sentiment?

*

If I heeded the rumors

Would I turn away

Before your impropriety

Deadened my spirit?

Or would I cast

My thirsting heart

Piecemeal

Into the sediment?
