The Pain of Desire

Soft and silent
It starts.
Falling over me

Almost ticking at first
Its kind of exciting.
The movement quietly
Floods through me.

The feathery softness
Quickly becomes solid.
No longer flexible,
It turns me fragile.

It's fluffy little fingers
Redder than the flames
Of my pain.

Molting by the fire,
I wait
Consumed by desire.
