NaPoWriMo: Day 13

Prompt: a non-apology for the things you’ve stolen.


Stealing is wrong, I was taught that
Once upon a time in Sunday School
Rueful apologies will not suffice
Return or replace what was seized
You have to make things right

New Years Eve: moments, kisses, hearts
Our thefts funding a fuller tomorrow
Time compounds the most fragile investments

Stolen glances are all that we need now
One smile is a fierce monologue
Regret finds no place amongst adoration
Romance rejects restitution
Your apologies mute to fond ears
