In Hiding
Seahorse

What I am trying to hide
 1
is the fact
 2
that I am a whore.
 3
And, even when I am satisfied,
 4
I still come to you for more.
 5
 
 
What I am trying to hide
 6
is the fact
 7
that I am a drunk.
 8
And not a pleasant one
 9
at that.
 10
I like my wine, my vodka, my gin,
 11
and,
 12
when I die,
 13
notify
 14
my friends
 15
and my next of kin.
 16
 
 
I take my pills
 17
and medication.
 18
Practise yoga and meditation.
 19
But still I call you
 20
for a chat.
 21
Believe me,
 22
I ain’t proud of that.
 23
 
 
I picture us
 24
in the nude.
 25
Drinking forbidden wines,
 26
and eating home-cooked food.
 27
Sleeping in your spacious bed.
 28
I’d like to be married.
 29
Oh, how I wish we were wed.

Whoa, trying so hard to rhyme!  Why are you 'outing' the name Seahorse?

This is very personal, maybe way too much so for the greedy hands of this place.

Oh, you have two names here?
