tarnish

there is
an inherent beauty
in the damned
in the unworthy
in the unclean

much like purity
gleams
with a soft golden glow
of sunshine
and joy

the tarnish of sin
casts
an equally wicked glimmer
in the light
of the full moon

perhaps
that is just the song
my secondhand heart
sings
in off key notes
