You are my safety net.
A guilty pleasure I shouldn’t come back to . . . but I’m attached to you.
I fall back on you when I can’t explain
or reach for you when I need to hide from others and myself.
You conceal my thoughts, my secrets and
you let me get away with my worst actions.
You’ve saved me several times, and you’ll continue to do so.
My dear white lie,
my dear sin,
without you life would be insurmountable
as honesty is a weight none of us should have to carry alone.
I love you,
but our relationship is a secret.
One I’ll always deny exists.
