So Sweet Addiction

Written by: Colin Marschall

-Sweetness coagulates,
stiffening resolve
to capture fugacious episodes-

Like an unrobed woman,
draped across fractured light,
tempting my skin,
pulsing pheromones across
the peak and troughs of my breath.

Seeping through cracks,
in callow defences, this icon
demands piety –demands satisfaction-

and trapped in allure,
of suggested orgasmic pleasure,
lips part in half-moon smile
of surrender.

Conflating arousal,
staining lips with you,
feed conflagration,

and so satisfy desire.

-memories are deceitful,
each dedicated
to sustaining this addiction-
