Bittersweet - Poem by A.J. McKinley

Bittersweet
And I fell
Laughing, crying
Another song

Bittersweet
And then silence
Truth, justice
Going home

Bittersweet
And we kissed
Touching, taking
Seeking desire

Bittersweet
And I knew
Heartache, anger
Shameful release

Bittersweet
And I left
Alone, eager
Selfless acts
