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.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Kerry 😀 so glad you enjoyed it ❤️

      (and thank you for the lovely prompt)

    I like the fact that you mixed sensual with scary, disgusting with flavorful. The use of your repeated stanza adds the feel of an old Greek chorus. Well done!

    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.

  10. Old Egg says:

    My you sound so strong and determined Sanaa, have you no weakness?

    1. Sanaa says:

      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! ❤️

  11. Julian says:

      Thank you so much, Sherry 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

  18. Rommy says:

    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.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Rommy 😀 so glad you enjoyed it ❤️

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Wendy 😀 so glad you enjoyed it ❤️

  21. Cressida says:

    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:)

    1. Sanaa says:

      Definitely 😀 thanks for stopping by, Cressida ❤️

      Thank you so much, Rosemary 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

  24. Vinay Leo R. says:

    It’s harder to resist temptation, easier to fall to those monsters, unless you’re aware of that. Eloquently woven.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Definitely 🙂 thanks for stopping by, Vinay ❤️
