My greatest mistake
If I let you creep under my skin
would you forgive me for wishing myself to die from sin?
If I let you hold tight and folded into your arms
would you forgive me for needing someone to look to for my daily psalms?
If I had you ravage my body in kisses, linger fingertips over my flesh
Would you forgive me when I can’t let go unless under the influence of a narcotic
If I had to be the mother of the year
Would you put me down when I fall from grace
I’m only human
That’s my greatest mistake.
