I try to show a smile

Hiding the wickedness within


I don’t go up to you as you walk by

I struggle to keep the demon back


Its energy rises and rises


Attempting to be nice and pleasant

While the darkness veils my eyes


Only to see sexuality in everything

Every motion

Every gesture

Every curve



Holding back…

The wooden gates with iron bars giving way

Trying to contain the impending explosion


The smile gets more and more strained

Boards start to snap

Hinges start to pop


Trying to let no one see

The sexual devil lurking inside


The gates are blown apart

The energy is unleashed

It rips apart my insides


Desperately trying to maintain

The explosion implodes

And the Body, Mind and Spirit collapse
