My taste buds tingle at the nearness.
The forbidden pleasure – ever-so close,
The possible fulfillment – ever-so tangible.
My eyes visualize the initial beauty,
To the touch I sense the delicacy.
Even my heart jumps for more.
Warnings of its truth flutter in my thoughts,
Yet the promise of instant satisfaction overrule.
‘It will satisfy me! It will better me. It will satisfy.’
The chant of song rings, confirming my heart’s reason.
Hitherto it was secret; now it is publicly my love.
Once far, now near. Once forbidden, now accepted.
My heart jumps for more.
The acceptance from others guide me deeper,
The change in their ethos makes me a hero.
‘It satisfies you! It completes you. It is you.’
The chants of the crowd rally me to reassurance.
Hitherto my eyes used to see the true sin of it all,
Now my eyes only see beauty.
Thin, shallow, false, beautiful beauty.
Lost, my heart jumps for more.
