Pleasure's Pain

From a spark to a flame,
that rips through time,
but for the heaviness of shame,
it would feel sublime.

When the Earth shakes,
when perception alters,
a tremble rises to a quake
and his courage falters.

An internal force
leaves them shredded and torn.
Gravity, from an unknown source,
full of grief, they mourn.

Beneath a cloak of shadow
still burns their fire,
life cannot prevent it though, 
insatiable desire.
