Forbidden fruit

Scandalous hearts race

Intoxicated with depravity.

 

Hollow souls entwine

Waxed with desire.

 

Sticky flesh writhes

Glistening with maggots.

 

A butterfly singes her wings

On lurid, sickly incence.

 

Soiled nylon sheets

Burn voraciously.

 

Forbidden fruit rots

In the shattered bowl.

 

Sweet wine recoils and sours

On lovers forked tongues.

 

The sour air is tainted

With hot, stolen kisses

 

The walls shed their scaly skin

The bloody mirror gashed open.

 

Satiated rats scamper about

Amongst burning embers.

 

A wasteland of virile bones

Decay amongst frozen ashes.
