Punishment

I was whispered to recently by a stranger,

ragged from years of needles and judgement,

His weathered hands anxiously rubbing his jeans,

his eyes filling with tears as he spoke,

‘we are not punished for our sins,

but by our sins,’

and now my darling,

our love makes much more sense.
