Poem - Velvet Ropes

The poem "Velvet Ropes" is about an infrequent path taken by some in our society.


Velvet Ropes

These velvet ropes mark the path
taken up when I was young
leading me where few go
unseen at the outward glance
strong as those of other ones
with simpler liking than my own

not by choice if will is loosed
with freedom to decide
given reign to see the world
in the full of leanings both
equal liking in the heart
when the urge is penchant

constraints are tossed away
wisdom begs for caution's path
embracing where the heart does stray
to be of two is more than both
not in between as some may think
instead the flavor is a mix

no expectations from the clan
considered when fondness creeps
though kept silence in case they hear
neither curse nor blessing found
in moments of relating pressed
between the willing recompensed

dark discomfort from the ends
of spectrum spanned, not betrayed
by reach of pleasure, full expanse
in the end awareness blooms
of temptation’s lure now embraced
what I am is not confused.
