Secret or Sin

Secret or Sin

A Poem by Jack Necron (Aubrey Jack Peaslee)



You took me in like a secret or sin
Tucked away by your dark corridors within
A glimmer transfixed in your eye
Hastily hidden whenever someone comes by.

It’s a changing of the seasons
To which I’m sure you have your reasons
Though that knowledge doesn’t reassure
It aids the gluttonous cancer devouring my core.

Walking on the blade’s edge so long beneath
Calluses have become my feet
Used to it now; a twisted accepted normality
Reaching the end delayed by constant formality.

You frequented me like a favorite song
Not played as often now as time has gone
Sometimes the entire tune completes
Others it’s cut short, tucked back to sleep.

It’s a third wall breaking daily
Shifting from pretend and reality
I can’t tell when all is true and well
Or the forced stage act from Hell.

Hanging by a band of threads over the abyss
A day passes as does a strand, none left by the end of this
Frightened at first but now calm at the notion
For if I do fall, my life will keep on going.

Feel like acceptance...for what will be. Reads lyrically...harmony. The title def had a pull, I was not disappointed. I'm sorry I am slow to reciprocate reviews, life is a tad busy atm. Starz

Brilliant imagery - a 'resigned to fate' kind of feeling comes across.
