Forbidden Treat

by Brise   Apr 4, 2018


Within me this forbidden lust is bleeding,
Yet this persistent craving is sometimes fleeting.
I catch it when I see you and holds me to a shutter,
For my lips itch for a kiss to stumble upon each other.

But you know I'm taken so your warmth is often held,
And I wonder if you feel this, a curiosity I often quelled
Do you feel this aching hunger wanting to be sated ?
Or this lustful craving waiting to be abated ?

My skin urges for you to learn my carnal appetite
But you're restrained knowing the taste could be contrite
And I'm aware the flavor of my desire is bittersweet
But so is the feeling of being painfully in between

For in the end I do not know if you thirst after me
So give me a hint if you savor this forbidden treat
Lick your lips between your smiles
Gift me with your longing stare that stretches miles

    Judging comment:
    This for me is the very epitome of playing with fire. Brise has expressed that curious craving to have what you can’t or shouldn’t have – knowing that one more step is going to complicate life (and not in a good way) but being inexplicably drawn in regardless. He (an assumption) knows it too and is most likely trying to be sensible – but her need to know for sure if it’s real or imagined on her part will be their undoing. It’s impossible to go through life only ever being attracted to the person you’re with, but it’s what you do about that attraction that writes the story – one way or the other. An excellent write. :-) x

    Absolutely love this, it's seductive somewhat and certainly relatable as we've all at some point craved what we can't or shouldn't have be in chocolate or another human lol

    I'm sure many of us can relate to this Brise and you've expressed the feeling brilliantly ... but the next step is a sticky one ... what happens if he openly hints? I hope you're inspired to write the sequel :-) x
