The Thursday Think Tank #45 - Secrets

This is the second time i'm going to give an introduction to a poem i've written. It is about a hideous habit of mine. I'll understand if you are  repulsed upon reading this, but this prompt encourages me to share it with you. Negative comments are welcome.

My guilt ridden secret
keeps me company,
popping in my mouth
when i'm hungry,
tired, bored,
sleepy, sad
or just angry.

It pops in
my mouth
only
when i'm alone
or with close family.

It's my thumb
and i am
a FIFTEEN year old
thumbsucker.
