I justify

what my heart


The anticipation,

an aphrodisiac

Your scent,


Drunk with yearning

You tempt me


and again

Not forbidden

but remorse

pangs me

As your sweet

morsels pass my


Angel and demon,


You have taken


yet again.

      1. You’re very welcome!!
        I did NaNoWriMo in 2016 and it was so hard and rewarding at the same time! Hopefully I can push through again this year, and keep my sanity at the same time. 😂
