It’s Just Porn … Nothing More.

So you sit there transfixed.

Eyes glued to the screen like old pictures in a photo album.

Before hitting on the play button you glance over your shoulder

– like a dude looking out for his wife while holding hands with a hooker –

at the bedroom door, just in case someone might have been peeking.

You’ve forgotten that the lock was the very second thing you turned as you walked in.

The first being that small voice you turned down until

It was barely audible as still it tried to remind you that what you were about to do was ill

– and by that I mean wrong.

But you didn’t need to hear any of that. You weren’t listening

So you flipped the switch, turned that off and searched for whatever else was on.

Ijp

Well your sexual needs were singing, so you began tuning in to the song;

Simultaneously drowning out any life the living water tried to drip in.

 

You seem a tad too excited though, correct me if I’m wrong.

 

I mean when asked why you didn’t wanna be bothered you said you just wanted to chill and watch a movie remember?

Isn’t that right? It’s just a movie.

But for a plain ol’ movie you’re kind of acting funny so i’ll ask again what all the fuss is about.

Why, I ask you, is there the slightest hint of drool escaping from your mouth?

Why are your palms sweaty, eyes crazy, why’s your pulse racing —

What is it really that you’re anticipating deary?

 

Earphones plugged in, eyes on the screen.

The two sensory organs you should be jealously guarding

Are the ones you’ve turned to waste bins.

So now your folly is as ironic as it is kin

To that of he who self-destroys so the problems don’t win.

See deceit has always been the devil’s game and the game plan isn’t changing…

But with all the truth available i’m wondering why you’re still the character he’s playing.

What I’m saying is a, sin-rich life only makes you a pauper.

I’ll bet the dictionary taught you that the term for your actions is pleasure…

but I just wish you could step out of that body and watch how you really suffer.

 

The video progresses, your hormones get aggressive.

The Holy Spirit’s trying to warn you but now your God sensors are defective;

So these emotions are taking over – the movie’s now your controller

And it doesn’t remotely cross your mind like a wrong answer in an exam paper

That you’re sinking yourself deeper into this dungeon of sexual slavery.

Which, by the way, you seem to have made your hangout lately.

 

So there you are; nervous, overexcited, sweaty and jittery,

Acting like a faulty, over-revved car engine;

Ready to go—going—GONE! It’s already done,

And instead of hands lifted in submissive service to the risen One

You’ve lent a hand to aid the scum that is ‘skin’ play the don

And all for what?

 

Just-a-movie.

  1. With my mind,
    transfixed in a kind
    of way, concurring
    with the truth-taling
    truth that addiction
    often leads to destruction…

    Keep writing fellow bard…

    1. That i will @innoalifa. So glad you could stop by. :)

    1. @kaymillion, oh wow, my apologies. I either didn’t recognize you from NS or i never saw the message. :(
      I’ll go back to check…but you could just put your fb name on here so i can search for you myself if – you’d prefer.
      Either way, I’m really glad and thankful that you enjoy the blog…I’d love to see your comments there though. ;)

      Thanks for reading!

    1. @praize, thank you. Glad you stopped by. :)

  5. Nice write-up. Your message is very clear and it’s not a topic that I see written about often. Unchartered topics cam be rather exciting to read.

    1. @ivie9ja I totally agree…plus they’re exciting to write Too! :)
      Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Nice message. Good poetry.

    1. Thank you @vincentdepaul, i’m glad you could stop by. :)

  7. @KWIKSIE. Good one but a little porn now and then doesn’t hurt ( just my view ).

    1. Alas, @danjuma , ‘a little’ soon becomes ‘a lot’
      A lot soon becomes second nature…
      Second nature becomes impulse.
      Impulse soon becomes compulsion.

  8. *Smiles*.
    @danjuma, Lol, you’re 100% entitled to your view buddy. But then, a ‘little now and then’ doesn’t always turn out to be what we expect now is it? If you study the psychology of substance abuse, you’d find that many times addicts don’t necessarily plan their addiction. It often just sneaks up on them.
    A person could mentally vow to stop at sniffing just one line of cocaine, or taking just one or two cigarettes, or drinking just one bottle of alcohol a week. But truth be told, the physiological system tends to have a mind of it’s own and before they know it, they’re not in charge anymore.
    I believe its a similar situation for some things that might start off ‘innocently’ as habits. Whether it’s gaming, exercise/gyming, masturbating, porn watching or whatever; we don’t often see the thin line between it being a part of our lives…and it becoming our life.
    Thanks for reading and commenting!! :D

  9. Nice title (nice use of paradox, bt-dub)
    Nice progress in narration, good form.
    You didn’t botch the landing.

    I like this.

    1. @anakadrian, thank you for your review of the work. :)
      I’m glad you like it…
      P.s: what is ‘bt-dub’ though…? o_0

  10. “by the way” (BT W)
