Behind Closed Doors

The Lust Between Them

Sparks were flying

Hormones were raging

Stolen glances

Seductive smiles

Flirting tongues

Sensual touches

Beasts awoke hungrily

Wanted their appetites pleased

And itches scratched

Golden opportunity

Behind closed doors

Brains stopped working

Morals forgotten

Clothes on the floor

Rhythmic movements

Lustful moans

Climax reached

Hopped in the shower

No amount of soap

Can wash away the sins

Three things can't stay hidden

The sun, the moon, the truth

When the doors get opened


Wrecked marriages

Devastated emotions

Childhoods destroyed

Traumas created

Adults enjoyed the thrill

Children are left with to deal


Author's Notes:

I had a dream three days back where my friend was telling me that she has been cheating on her husband with her cousin's husband and my ex-colleague.

That's when I realised that there's a lot of nasty things that happens behind closed doors. This made me remember my childhood trauma.

The adults in my life who were meant to protect me were doing nasty things with each other and with other people. I was just a kid. It took a huge toll on me and I'm still very traumatised by it.

My humble request, please don't ever cheat. If you think you're easily seduced when your partner isn't giving you the attention you need, then please don't get into a relationship or get married.

    The way you’ve written this feels so appropriate- fast-paced and almost without thinking, rapid-fire words. “Beasts awoke hungrily Wanted their appetites pleased” is a clever way to show how desires influence actions. Smart and harrowing imagery.

    I'm sorry about the trauma that you faced, My Morbid Friend. Parents have a responsibility to put the children's needs first, and unfortunately, that didn't happen for you. *Healing hugs and love*

    Congrats on the top story!!❤️🎉🎉🎉

  • This poem is a work of art… ❤️✨🕊️ Sadly parents are often traumatised children themselves, desperately trying to feel loved and wanted… and they get drawn into such relationships. There was cheating in my parents marriage all the way through… neither of them knew love.. it was all about toxic attachment. And no one to blame. They didn’t have the awareness we do today. They didn’t have the same privilege we have to read psychology, to understand trauma and how things affected us… They lived in more reactive states…. With far less awareness… Always more love is the answer… more compassion, less judgement 🕊️

    I forgot how sultry this one is and then the note at the end rattled me, I remember reading it but forgot some details since I've last looked at the poem! I love the imagery and pacing of the poem! The sun, the moon, the truth line was my favourite this time around!! You tell such a tantalizing tale Dharrsheena!

  • Wow! This is powerful. I love: "Three things can't stay hidden/The sun, the moon, the truth." In my future book, if I give you credit and perhaps a small amount of cash, may I use this line? BTW, thank you for leaving a comment for "Vocal Inspirations!" The comment disappeared. LOL. However, the Reader Insight is still there. We have a mutual admiration society!!!

    I was enjoying the poem to be honest haha but the personal story at the end got me to introspect on the subject. I'm sorry for your trauma. Know that it wasn't your fault. Great poem.

  • Mackenzie Davis10 months ago

    Love the brevity contrasting with the far reaching, deeply seated, long lasting emotions and hurt. I was surprised by the ending and also the middle; at first I assumed it was the beginning of a morally good relationship! What a ride. I’m so sorry it was based on personal experiences, though; I cannot imagine all that went into this, but can certainly feel it from these verses. Well done! 💜

  • Denise Larkin10 months ago

    Wonderfully expressed words. I can see the trauma.

  • Real Poetic10 months ago

    You are so extremely talented it’s unbelievable. I will be rereading this for the rest of the night lol.

    Dharrsheena, this was raw and so emotional. I love the seduction in the beginning and the way you reflected the immediate regret afterwards. It was a whole rollercoaster of a journey you took us through! The lines "No amount of soap Can wash away the sins" cuts so deep! Also thank you for sharing an intimate part of yourself with the reader, it was very brave of you! 💜

    You can really pack an emotional punch- and some surprising twists- in a few words.

    Emotionally intense, yet beautiful.

  • Utkarsh Sinhaabout a year ago

    Very well written with a great message.

  • maisie about a year ago

    beautifully done. cheating is a horrible thing that I'm lucky to never have experienced, but I know it hurts a lot more than just the two involved, and you really captured that

  • Avery Meadowsabout a year ago

    Loved the message behind this. Also, loved the play on words and literary devices used. Nice.

    This was some good writing! Thanks for sharing this poem, I enjoyed reading every bit of it, and I loved the personal touch at the end.

  • Loryne Andaweyabout a year ago

    By restricting the syllables and word count in each line you managed to convey the furtiveness and guilty thrill that is infidelity. Well done.

  • Muchtar Suryawanabout a year ago

    Loved the twist at the end. Great work!

  • Chua Yuan Hengabout a year ago

    Lust is human nature. But, there must always be self-control. Nice poem.
