Despite Your Instinct

Grace Marshall - Tuesday, September 19, 2017


Redness tainted her cheeks
He thought she was nervous
He couldn’t read her mind
That her blush was guilt

A hint of shame and unrest
At the thoughts that flowed
That hit her mind like a bullet
When she spotted him there

She'd never felt such feelings
And the disgust that filled her
The desire to harm him so
Startled her into unrest

And while she wouldn't act
Wouldn't follow the desires through
She was still embarrassed
She could think such things

So maybe innocence was more
More than she had realized
It was being pure in deed
Despite your first instinct
