Tempting Fate

Tempting Fate

A Poem by VertoAtrum

Meeting you was a casual occurrence, but our bond is anything but common.

Breaking hearts is our greatest profession
Teasing words bring forth deep confession
This chaotic lust has become an obsession
That keeps me wide awake

Breath upon skin so hot it might melt
A game with two cruel winning hands being dealt
The single most power that I've ever felt
That leaves me in pieces

A taunting song that's first whispered then sung
Fragile necks that are violently wrung
Grinning teeth hide a treacherous tongue
That causes me to shiver

Such endless ache this dynamic provides
Pushing the limits yet skirting the lines
A universe swims within your sharp eyes
That I can not navigate

Like stone against glass my body will break
Melt away sorrows and all that is fake
Falling in love by a fatal mistake
That I could not stop
