guilty pleasures

The feeling of guilt is a funny thing

you will be having a blast

until the haunting horror creeps up on you

its chains wrapping themselves around your physique

as if to suffocate you into sadness

shoving the inexplicable feeling of remorse mixed with

a sense of failure, loss and regret

into your mind, your body, your

soul.

 

It’s burried so deep down it’s

hard to weed out

but when the real root of your

incapability of moving forward

is exposed

shaking up the earth as it goes,

a patch in your heart is freed

and with it the chance to plant a new seed.
