Pic: Self

i don’t know how
i breathe you in,
but i know
i do,

and inspite
of all the filters,
i can consciously engage,

the guilt
remains a killer,
for you forbade me
from doing so,

and though
i know i shouldn’t,
it still happens,
i know it does,

i dare not tell you,
for repetitions
of a mistake,
are seldom forgiven,

but i do
and i can’t,
keep lying
to myself,

for when the soul
is a co-conspirator,
this sin of the lungs,
feels a redemption in itself.
