…GUILTY PLEASURES by Kaira

A beautiful poem by Kaira Speaks.

****

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
