Giving in to shame

19 Apr

Giving in to shame

is like purchasing a ticket

for a seat upon a ghost train

in which everyone tries to cover

their nakedness, but only succeed

in covering their eyes, like children

believing they are now invisible

and the world is but a dream

Giving in to shame

is to play the devil’s game

of shame on you, shame on me

of cursing all that is human

as if we were born a mistake

and must hate ourselves

for it is only what we deserve

Giving in to shame

makes every desire a horror show

a nightmare from which we can’t awake
