Love Not Sin 1972. - Poem by Terry Collett

What's it like?
she asks me
my new friend

what's what like?

at the church
where you go

don't go now
lost my way
in limbo
I reply

but back then
when you went?
she asks me

went along
to the church
saw the priest
and confess

confess what?
she insists

any sins
that I had

what's a sin?
she goes on

an offence
against God

what actions?

Too many
to repeat

give me some

she lies there
in the bed
butt naked
hands behind
her dark brown
hair and head

having sex
outside of
a marriage
sexy wife
or husband
and so on
I tell her

so you are
a sin thing
being here
with me now?

both of us
are sinning
in God's eyes

but I don't
believe in
God at all
she answers

God don't care
about that
He doesn't
that matters
sin's a sin
in His book
I reply

that's not fair
why should I
be judged so?
she utters

pulling up
the white sheet
to cover
her two tits
from my sight

that God saw
what we did
all last night

I kiss her
on the head
on the cheek
on the lips
on the chin
hoping she'll
relent and
let me in
to her bed
and her arms
between thighs
to make love
and not sin.
