Open Lids

via Daily Prompt: Desire

Desire is this thing that needs hiding.

Until its safe for unleashing, it’s hiding.

In the dark.

In the quiet.

Secret desire crammed in a box.

Poised in a box in the mind.

Ready for escape.

Secret and safe and smothered.

Desire won’t run dry if it runs free..

Let it go, grow and flow.

Let it be.

    1. True, depending on how free your allowing yourself to be. I am no such free person, but imagine the lovely effect such openness would have. Although the censorship makes it all the more exciting at times. I don’t know where Im going with this. Lol!
