The halo broken under the crushing weight of desire.
The pieces falling into guilty eyes.
Blinding her to promised fidelity.
Low voices in dark corners; the touching.
Temptation reaching deep, pulling.
Strengthened by imagined possibilities.
Guilt defeated by passion.
Excitement heightened by deception.
Truth distorted by dark eyes.
Lies, excuses, secrets, reasons.
Lives teetering on the high edge of sinful thrill.
Not seeing the inevitable plummet
Into bottomless despair.
