Daydreams

sock-drawer

A delicious secret you are.
I hide you in my drawer.
Tucked behind my socks with holes
and faded, fraying bras.
Overwashed and underused.
Too loved to throw away.
I take you out when feeling lonely.
Pretend that you will fit.
Sink my nose into your scent.
Smother all my doubts.
Wrap my arms within the weave.
The fabric of my dreams.
Oh what a juicy, sickly sweet,
delicious secret that you are.
My lovely, guilty pleasure.
I will hide you in my drawer.
Slide it shut and walk away.
Until another day.

This was my response to Day 8: Drawer, Ode, Apostrophe.
