Today I learned of humility
Of ignorance in "love".
I use the term loosely
Or at least I did.

Given freely as
Front lawn flyers.
Given in good faith yet,
Worthless.

A self-inflicted euphoria
Obstructing reality.
When will I learn?

That I'm truly a virgin in truth
and a whore of words.

....given as freely as front lawn flyers...
What a wonderfully descriptive phrase! Very nice work.

Such lovely Darkness!! Too true of us all.

Very powerful statements here. nice use of imagery with the "flyers" comment and the "whore" comment. I have been guilty of this myself. I watch it now. Well done. Well done.
