I carry shame
like a beloved companion
piggy backing it
throughout the years

It is a reliable friend
when others have abandoned
it stays close to my side
guilt being twisted as loyalty

It is a constant ghost
haunting my every dream
and awaking my fears
until it has become my reality

It is a seductive lover
curving itself around
my very heart and soul
intwined in an unbreakable knot

The shame I carry
like a beloved companion
draining me completely
and maybe just maybe...

This is what you always intended for me

    This is incredibly insightful. We're such experts in accepting discomfort to the point where it becomes comfortable. I guess that's how we cope with it. Brilliant Nobody! :-) x
