Her one guilty pleasure



As her pen touched the paper

Flames erupted from the ink which flowed

Writing was her one guilty pleasure

It was all she had ever known


And the erotic words danced pleasurably

On each sultry and seductive page

This was the role she was chosen for

To dance freely on a paper stage

Going the distance


Sad and distant grows the weary tune

The clickety clack now hardly a tap

Remorseful in her glum temperament

Still she dares not begin to turn back

For onward she must chug along

Continuing on her chosen course

And even though the hills are steep

She’s still a strong reckoning force

The grime and filth still covers her

And her stacks are in need of repair

But this little engine will never give up

As long as the mission is still there

He was lost somewhere in the pages of time
Always searching for what he could not find

The treasure he sought just didn’t exist
Although the ache in his heart would always persist

Years went by and he gave up the fight
Never thinking he would find such a beautiful light

Then one day by random chance
He found his treasure under special circumstance

The sight was brilliant to behold
As precious as the purest of gold

He had waited all of his life to find
The gift that had dwelt in his subconscious mind

Finding the treasure had taken all of his life
Leaving him with undo pain and strife

If only he could have found his prize years ago
Instead of listening to lies and never letting them go

The pain and the suffering he could have foregone
Now haunted him from dusk until dawn

Broken he now had to make a decision
Would he listen to the past or make a revision

His choice could release him from his pain
Or hurt him more than he could ever gain

His choice of forgetting and letting go
Would help him more than he could ever know

Advice by his maker encouraged him to proceed
And by his choices he finally did succeed
