Original Poems

Between the Longing and the Act

Between the longing and the act
Are matters there of conscience;
For who the other person is;
What might their long life haunt —

But our desires know not of
Morality – or others –
For evil spreads by people blithely
Taking what they want

To gaze upon, then crush the living flower:
There is but one sin, that’s
Abuse
Of
Power
