Forbidden

Eyes alight with a wicked fire,

I drink the lies from your lips

as we steal the darkness from the night.

My shameless hunger is fed

only by your hidden smile

fraught with deceitful delights.

Trapped in a vortex of abandon

with all reason left behind,

I careen wildly along your confident desire.

Our nocturnal embrace flees

from the creeping dawn

as you leave me to cope

alone with my daytime persona.
