The urge nearly consumes as it draws you in.

Pulling further,

harder toward what it is you ache so badly for.

"Give in" it whispers.

A seductive tone that knows no denial.

And as you writhe in a pain deeper than you've ever known,

you do.

You give in, and you gain.

But you have lost so much more.

The weakness aquired is deadly;

poisoned with a never ceasing need.

A need to be possessed.

The air bleeds from between your lips

almost as quickly as your soul slips through your fragile fingers.

And in a moment,

just a fragment of time that someone else has already forgotten,

you have achieved the single most sought after thing in all the world.
