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 to deal
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.

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

    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

    Very powerful writing. Great work!

  • Loryne Andawey2 months 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.

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

    Great work. Describes well the animalistic nature of humanity and a triumphant return for you.

    It's something people forget when they begin affairs, there is collateral damage.

  • Danwil Reyes3 months ago

    Lust with a moral twist right here!

  • C. Rommial Butler3 months ago

    Favorite lines: "Three things can't stay hidden/The sun, the moon, the truth". Hidden being the only word with two syllables in an otherwise monosyllabic turn of phrase creates a perfect hinge, reinforces the idea of doors opening, of revealing.
