Today’s challenge is to write a poem that is based on a secret shame, or a secret pleasure.



When the world’s asleep,

And there’s nobody looking,

When all the lights turned off,

And there’s just the night lamp glowing,



When the room door’s shut,

And there’s a sweet silence humming,

When all around is quiet,

And there’s a cool night air wafting,



A warm bed, soft pillows…

A throw over my feet, a book to dive in,

And a bar of sheer heavenly bliss…

        1. Thanks Sangbad😊. Just read yours…about the game. As always well-written. Seeing familiar names feels like returning to a poetry alumni.
