How Did I…?

Original words

Original thoughts

Never a one, had I


Original sin

Original blasphemy

Ignorantly guilty, am I?


Originally intended

Unintentionally mistaken

Mistakenly underestimated, thought I



Overly sensitive

Wholly misunderstood, was I?


Intentions lie to your face

Truth dies on your tongue

Your lips hesitate to grasp the situation, yet I


Close my eyes and purposely swallow

The lump of whys now caught in my throat

And in the silence that followed

Goodbye strummed its final note.  Still I….
