A.J. Huffman (poetry)


The Lie is Forgiveness

You think I do not know
that you are bathing me
in poison.
But I can see
my skin is almost gone.
Then there is your smile.
Well worth the absence.
It numbs me
than any drug.
Just be careful.
Not to stop the motion.
If I catch you,
I will swallow you.
And dissolve us both.
As a whole.
