The Temptation That Is You

In the place where fire meets ice, I feel only you. Your pale skin plays such a lovely contrast, dancing along and casting quiet silhouettes while I close my eyes and imagine I am anybody else, just not myself. Summer rain has never felt so cold against the hairs that stand straight on the back of my neck, whenever your gaze comes my way. So much love in the spaces our intertwined bodies contain.

Is it a sin, you and me?

Should we both back away now or finish playing the game we started?

Have you seen the devil? Have you dreamt about dancing with him while all your sorrows are burned away in his fiery embrace?

Even with the sun shining down upon me, I can’t keep you warm. I have nothing to offer but the solace that is my steady breaths in pace with your shallow ones.

When an angel sins do you think they’re so ashamed that they cut off their own wings? Your clean, white feathers are slowly falling to the ground.

I am undeserving of all that you are but always, you and I attract like two magnets, we’re complete opposites.

The flowers I gave you were burnt and withering, I’m sorry I wouldn’t let you tell me you love me.

You’re crackling apart, you’ve been stepped all over – it was all too soon. I could drown in all that you contain and it would wither me down to less than even a spark. I’m a match to water and you’re a cold, lifeless body smoking her last cigarette. Soon, we’ll both be nothing at all.

  1. Sepertinya complicated,, cinta datang dan pergi, semua makhluk pada akhirnya akan merasa kehilangan. Bagaimana keinginan hanyalah ingin, dan mungkin mereka tercipta hanya untuk bersua bukan saling memiliki. Layaknya bulan dan matahari ada ditempatnya saling memberi, tapi tak bisa saling mendekat. Apalagi devil n angel ? Sayang klo sampai malaikat motong sayapnya, hanya untuk seorang yang tercipta menggoda 🙂 aku suka tulisanmu, your writing makes me reflect. Salam,, selalu berkarya,, 🙂
