Guilty Pleasure

Spread the love

Mid smothered sighs, beckon to wind
smiles play around corner of your lips.
Guilty pleasure, smoked strawberries
beguile me to carry your world on hips.

I know your design, greed and lust
monsters that madly sweep the sky.
You forget they can not please this eye.

Though ardor, raging, gushed as sea
Love, advise me not on how to speak-
Guilty pleasure, gourmet blue cheese
observe as you try to soothe and tease.

I know your design, greed and lust
monsters that madly sweep the sky.
You forget they can not please this eye.

    Such an interesting blend of sensory imagery, Sanaa. The choral effect of your repeated stanza creates a subtle contrast to your guilty pleasures stanza. A most intriguing poem.

    Hey Sanaa ~~ Greed and Lust are monsters of their own right. Yes, they can destroy one not well grounded in a belief that can not be shaken.
    I smiled when you wrote of “gourmet blue cheese observ(ing) as you try to soothe and tease” as being a tempter. Of course I love blue cheese in all the ways that I know of.

      Thank you so much Robin ❀️ One thing I have learned in life is never to show signs of weakness, especially not when someone’s trying their best to bring out my worst side. Don’t give anyone the satisfaction of knowing they have any sort of control over you! ❀️

    Oh sure, it’s fun to indulge in a guilty pleasure every now and again, but often they won’t sate what it is one is truly hungering for. Delightfully wry piece Sanaa.

    Blue gourmet cheese can pack on the pounds…..A roly poly is not pleasing to the eye. Wait until you get old Saana and then you can over indulge in gourmet cheese and strawberries, carry the entire universe on your hips and no one cares:)
