…GUILTY PLEASURES

****

You love me

When the lights go off

In the dead of the night

When the moon is out

****

You keep me

Behind closed doors

Under the sheets

Where the world can’t see

****

You hold me

Like a dirty secret

Then Kiss me

Like a guilty pleasure

****

I’m your worthless treasure

Unwrapped and devoured

Drowning deeper

In your fallacies

****

Someday soon

When I awake

From this mirage

Of shame and fear

****

I will carve a crown

From my tears and scars

And learn to love

Myself again

  1. Beautiful poem you’ve written, a great start for a budding Poet. Treated very sensitive issue we all experience as youths influenced by our environment and judged by our moral ethics & conscience.
