The hunt

byskittles_lm©

smoldering passion
growing with each breath
flames licking upward to
scorch the flesh

a searing kiss
gnash of teeth
on teeth in a primal
dance of lust

bodies entwined in
primitive battle
each striving to emerge
victorious, fulfilled

Raging desire pulses
along the threads
connecting soul to
inflamed soul

locked in ancient struggle
to take, to enmesh
to consume and
devour the other

to be consumed
mounted and ridden
to peaks of delirious
height and pushed

suspended on the edge
yearning for release
trembling for the push
the trigger

shock of teeth in flesh
and the fall begins
rush of air as thought
evaporates

downward spiral
of need and greed
bodies overridden
by base instincts

animals now in
the snare of climax
clawing and biting
feeding each other

inhuman growls
and ragged breath
as flesh tightens
around rigid flesh

locked together
teeth bared
wild eyed without
compassion

forehead to forehead
pulses slow
eyes unglaze
humanity returns

time lost now
only vaguely
remembered
satiated and worn

collapsing under
the release of
bestial need
thirst quenched

sweat dries and
bodies tremble
as they come
back to themselves

wondering how
they have lived
so long with
such hunger

Sated, the beasts
are fed and quiet
heartbeats slow
and the air stills

wonder then how
long the beast
will be quiet now
that it has hunted
