frenzied melodies

It was intangible yet persistent 

In its ritual incapacitation

That kind of attraction— 

Inherently hypnotic, sedative 

Inviting as an untouched wilderness 

One that calls exclusively 

To the brave

To the most reckless, as incessant

As the shriek of roman candles

Streaking unfettered in hot breaths

An atmosphere quietly infatuated

With chaos, the eerie potency

Of our thoughts, the shared

Recognition of profound temptation

The result of some unholy evolution

Inherent in us, from the very first touch  

Our hands, having poorly caged

Impulsive beasts, charged forth 

To the hungry freedom found

With fingertip to mouth, hushing

The low wail of sirens, signaling invasion

Our minds, ignite like exposed wires

Our hips, autonomous of all reason

As if containing magnets, reverberating

On contact, anchored by invisible

Marionette strings, confessions elicited

Between bitten lips, frenzied melodies

As the wings of a startled sparrow 

Our blood, deluged with the fruition

Of proximity, wholly succumbing

To a mesmeric intoxicant

As he hovered over me, like weaponry

Capable of so much catastrophe
