a poem I wrote about temptations, desire and the truth of what really lies beneath all of that.

There in the shadows you wait, watching me with such intense hunger but waiting ever so patiently for me to stumble. Waiting for me to lose sight of my path, for the light to fade and burn out, leaving only the insatiable want that feeds your dark soul.
I know you are there, I can feel you ever closer as you reach for me. So tempting, part of me wants to give in and let you win but I fear there is no turning back if I let you have my soul. You thirst for it, need it and thrive on it. You would never let me go once you have me, using me over and over until you no longer want it.... slowly killing me with every touch, your kisses bleeding me.
Just the thought of it and I can feel the flame from my soul weakening, the light glimmering just enough to survive the darkness.
