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
