Read Poem: GUILTY, by T. Jarmon Hildreth

I don’t have to say your name
or hide beneath hyperbole and metaphor
or change the details to protect our guilt

neither one of us are innocent
we both created a storm
that left behind enough pain to last lifetimes
I dare not pretend this is in honor of
the beauty we were in the beginning

no
this is an ode to a tragedy that will always be
the you and me that we became
