A deadly sin.
Intense desire usually resulting in thoughts or physical affairs -
an affair you're meant to stay away from.
But what makes lust so deadly?
It isn't the wild, hungry grazing of ones fingertips on skin.
The kind that results in goosebumps covering visible parts of you.
It isn't the way they kiss you, long and greedy -
removing the air from your lungs to fill their own.
No, that's not what makes lust deadly.
It's fatal because of the way it consumes you.
Your mind is fixated on it.
Even in the moments your skin is free of visible reactions,
your thoughts are dancing with images of more.
