Day 7: “Human Nature”

Poetry

if only my sentiments

didn’t stain me with lunacy

reducing my fidelity

to unkempt desires.

if only pursuit

devoid of continence

beckoned devotion

and not desperation.

if only your efforts

could apprise themselves —

shed through the filter

draped over your lips.

if only being human

was conventional.
