strings

Written by: andrew delapruch

despite what s/he might’ve said
when it all began,
there really were 
strings attached---
for to make him/herself believe
that one can **** & walk
without a second thought,
would be to convince oneself that
nothing ever happened &
even with the best *****on the market
pumped into the veins,
stuffed up the nose or
sucked down the windpipe,
it eventually comes back
like a brick to the face &
the body will remember if the
mind & heart 
refuse.
