Temptation & Madness

In the howling of the night
I hungered for the only thing that
Made me feel alive.

Temptation and madness
Desire and pain,
Drove me to fall from the sky,
Clip my wings
And shatter my soul,
Just to be with you.

Look at what you’ve done
To me,
Transformed me into your
Carnivorous creation,
Where I only crave your kiss
And your sinful touch.
Where I want only your blessed curse
And nothing else.

Because in the dark hours after
Midnight,
You crept into my dreams
And made feel the ghost of you,
Cocooning me into a casket of
Your love.

You made me drink the poison
Of wishes and longing,
And made me never want
Another.

You’ve unbroken my heart
With confessions and prayers;
Blasphemous on my lips
And made me love you.

I no longer wonder what
The ending may be.
I no longer wonder what
Will become of us.

My love,
As long as the sky
Continues to cry out for us
And the Moon embraces us
Every night,
We are not finished
And there is no escape from
The reaper.

For he knows what we know.
That we are infinite.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
