Continued Pursuit

Sexy, gorgeous, haunting- taunt me

just to lie awake in vain

with lips like sugar

and words like venom

________

A heart darkening with passion

pulse and panic

like slow suicide

of flesh and stardust

________

It’s all laid bare

every deep, dark, happy thought

ever in the continued pursuit

of that which still eludes
