A Confession

I once disappeared in the late afternoon

The winter sky dark, lit soleley by a cresting moon

Not a trail of breadcrumbs or a note left behind

My teenagers abandoned, for I was disinclined

To share with them my secret location

The ultimate goal was their alienation 

Up in my bedroom I was at peace unseen 

A good book and a big bed fit a queen

My guilty pleasure, my idea of heaven

A heated mattress pad cranked up to eleven

Were I wealthy, or even not quite so poor

I’d never get up and I’d put a lock on my door _________________________
