Torn In Two

Torn In Two

A Poem by Kat Collins

The pain and desire of a fiery, burning love of an illicit affair.

Heart is torn in two,
trying to discern the light.
The path wavers and blurs,
twists and turns crazy.
Wondering where I'm headed,
can I keep to the road?
Grinding my knuckles white
as tremors shake my knees.
Lightening flashes in my heart,
raging fire burns in my groin.
A hot, unquenchable thirst
that never dims.
Smoldering, simmering haze,
confuses me, spins me upside down.
Tingling pulses racing deep.
A sigh, a moan...
senses I want to keep.
It's spiraling out of control.
A longing so sure,
how can I be satisfied by something so impure?
Guilty shame douses flames coldly.
Ice water dribbling down my spine.
Eyes open wide,
I am no longer blind,
but can see clearly the line.
Stumbling backwards running for safety,
but my soul still lingers wanting...
tasting hot, fiery whispers.
Teasing, tempting.
How long can I resist?
