Is it wrong?
by Ashley Morris-Graham

Is it wrong that she still thinks of him?

And knows that he doesn't think of her.

That he among everyone else she has dealt with has moved on...

This is the same reason why she doesn't want relationships,

she sees why lust is a deadly sin.

Is it wrong that she still thinks of him?

The person who has left her for the dirt,

she would still take him back again.

The person who shot her heart,

She wants to kiss her murderer.

Is it wrong that she wants to kiss him, to hug him, to love him?

Is it wrong? How can you free yourself from confinement of imagination?

He's never coming back,

He was never hers to begin with.

Yet, she still thinks of him.

Is it wrong that she still thinks of him?

And knows he will never think of her.
