Day #6 Poem a day challenge inspired by the painting Flight of the Witches by Francisco de Goya #aprpad

Save me as I flee from my sinful desires

A want,

A need, so powerful

I think I shall go mad.

                                               I want you…

Cloak me, so that I am invisible

To that which my flesh craves

In the cover of darkness,

I shall make my escape,

                                                          Yet I need you…

They devour my resolve

With tainted kisses

Feeding on my soul

I am helpless

Carried weightlessly away

To be tormented evermore

By my own selfish sinful appetite,

                                                                   Although I love you

                                                                                               I am doomed.
