Dark Secrets

Do you harbor a secret true?
Like everyone else and me too;
All of us have something to hide,
Affairs we would rather set aside:

An illicit fling or an erotic scene,
Oh, of nature grave and keen,
A wild fantasy or wistful whims
Or maybe, one of the 7 deadly sins.

Like the wilted rose in a book
Or the rickety skeleton in a nook,
We shove our frailties in the far recess
of our mind for no one to access.

We all succumb to carnal sentiments,
Unmindful of the 10 commandments;
If anyone can prove me otherwise
that truth not I speak but plain lies,

Forever to hold my peace I swear,
Not to write, speak or ever share
my thoughts or opinion in this case
Until my last day of the sunshine I face!
