My Treasured Secret

The ancestors watch
as I bleed out the hope of
a righteous future;
sacrificed at the doors of
my celebrated virtue.

Within this house my
demons are comfortably
kept, as I provide
them with everything they need
to pass the time.  They feed on

the desires and
dreams given in plentiful
supply.  Always they
are seated in the way of
happiness, but I treat them

as my honored guests.
They are never in want for
strong is my weakness,
safe and well hidden I keep
them as a treasured secret.
