“Whatever happens after this, I just want you to know that this was worth it. You were worth it. You were worth everything.”
I stopped seeing a penitent.
I stopped seeing a child of God.
I stopped seeing a lost lamb in need of a shepherd.
I saw only a woman in need- ripe, delicious need.
I was sorry that I hadn't controlled my desire long enough to step into a cold shower or go for a run or any of the other tricks I'd learned over the past three years to stifle my urges.
Mostly, I'm sorry that I'm not sorry.
Dammit, I wasn't sorry at all.
....our eyes locked and we surged past every barrier- stranger and stranger, priest and penitent, Tyler and Poppy. We were simply male and female, as God had made us, Adam and Eve, in the most elemental and fundamental form. We were biology, we were creation incarnate...

Thine lamb Poppy did come.
Thy saintly will undone,
as too did his urges leaven.
Gave us smut when common sense fled.
But forgiveness in afterthought he pled.
Poppy led him into temptation,
But delivered him from lonely damnation.
Thy angst and taboo more potent I would favour,
but thine ethereal smut I did savour.
And before I could stop myself, I thought, I want my dick in that mouth.
After dinner, Sean and Aidan whipped my ass at the latest Call of Duty while Rayan texted the latest girl on his phone(...).
