You wrap your arms around me and I melt while in your embrace. I’m filled with uncertainty, but physically I want to be devoured by you. 

 

A whisper in my ear, soft and barely there. But your tone is a poisonous persuasion that I’m willing to drink. 

 

I tremble underneath your glance, but it intoxicates me and my reasoning becomes blurry. You take me by the hand, a touch softer than a feather. I know where this will lead, we’ve danced this dance before. Darkness and suffering is hidden within you...but the way you sway puts me in a hypnotic trance and I follow foolishly. 

 

You place a gentle kiss upon my lips and instantly I want you. But this union is forbidden within this world we have created for ourselves. I want you take me now... I want to take you now..

 

I am lost within you, you have caught me again. I feel euphoric, swimming in a dangerous ecstasy. 

 

We tumble in taboo affairs and then we lay basking in the sins we have committed. Reality will now creep upon us and create waves of melancholy...But alas, when I turn to face you, the beautiful mistake I have made, you have already vanished. 

 

Leaving me to wallow in the abyss of self-pity and the mistake I’ve allowed myself to make...a tear run downs my cheek as I softly call out your name....”Temptation, my love. When will you meet with me again?”
