The way her body molded to his

Was damnation in every sense of the word.

The tension rippled like stones on a lake,

Barely skimming the surface.

And the second their lips touched

Nothing else mattered.

They were each others’ forbidden fruit

Almost like a walking temptation.

He was all chiseled jawlines and woodsy scents

And she was all soft curves and exquisite features

A match made in hell.

Desire is what possessed them

Desire is what consumed them

Desire is what ruined them.

Because love is a chemical reaction, but lust? 

Lust is a death sentence.
