The Trap

© 2017 SachikoMochiko �" Sachi Ruaya

 

This is about OUR navel. Yes, the belly-button. A small dip implanted on our surface. In our daily lives, it seems so insignificant. We shower, wash it…or maybe don’t. Scratch it, tickle it. But does this body-part secretly reveals something?

 

Its like a trap for sweat and grime

The plumpness of your jolly belly

 

So smooth…

So soft…

 

But suddenly a rubber ring presents its flaws

As beautiful your skin may be

Your navelo that damned navel!

Hides the devil within;

odour waitin to unleash its reign

 

And unknown substances:

From jelly from the beach party,

To the Earthly soil, where we belong

Or mere build between the tiny, dark folds

 

This is why the navel represents us.

 

In Ma’s womb;

Your navel is a doorway for you to receive energy.

Without it, ye’ ain’t gonna be here

 

Just like us…

 

All of us hide a devil within �"a trap

No matter what mask you out on;

to keep you sane. As you walk amongst the beings

 

There is a navel-evil within

No matter how full of goodies you are

(plumpness)

There. Is. A. Trap!

It's humorous (and maybe bit gross), though I get the deeper meaning. You write well, and convey a powerful message. I'm still not sure the "belly-button" gets the reader beyond the humorous aspect, but I'm just one guy. You might consider ditching the intro at the top, and just let the read figure it out. Thanks for sharing your work.

I liked it, sometimes stuff you write when bored can the best.

I'm amazed at how much creativity you put into this. I wasn't expecting so much uninhibited expression about something so simple & something we take for granted without noticing it so much. My favorite part is where you describe how it's a port of life when inside the mom's tummy. I also very much like your free style of picking fun words to express yourself (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Belly -button is the remnant of the life line that sustained us while we mere parasites ! A wonderfully, witty disclosure you brought forth about subject matter deserves applause! -All the best.

Yes! What fluff lies within! A comical piece but a write to ponder on its serious meaning.

Ha, I love it! I feel the tone as slightly humorous, but a bit sinister at the same time. Like being captured by a pirate and then they feed you breakfast and tell you dirty jokes. Seriously though, the "...Earthly soil, where we belong" is a super awesome line. Really dig that one for some reason.
