A Poem by Sarah Marie

Desirous me
Lives only in the plea
That longing will be quenched-
It is too dear a friend
And too strong a voice
To be an enemy;
Yet it works against me
In the most horrid,
Breathtaking ways.
It tries to teach
Me many things
That otherwise I would
Never learn;
It shows me how to need
And cling and yearn.
Passion's playmate
Is a vicious thing-
As natural as a sigh,
As pure as the sunrise,
As fiery as a flame,
And as sweet as sin.

Yes, you understand so well of desire's sweet sting. It brings one alive in the deepest ways, and yet can bring such haunting revelations when we are undone. Play on, passionate poet!

This is a golden piece.
I am spell bound by the magic of its words.
How may I appreciate the lovely sentence,"And as sweet as sin".?
