atonement

I’m attracted to you
like a path I chose
long ago
to not follow

Not because I have any regrets
nor because I wonder what I may find

But because I knew where it led
and I didn’t want any of it

Perhaps it’s some lingering guilt
for not having made any effort
to leave upon it
some mark
that could have altered
its course
