Passion

Spent
This coin
Of my passion
This issue - Spent

Highly priced
This passion spent
In torn dress
Broken nails

Issue spilt
On split skin
Red mixed white
Frothy pink

First date - last date
Always like this
Resisting kisses
Subdued by knife

Pink skin fading
Warm issue cooling
In passions blood
She's lain past sleep

I really enjoyed this...that dark twist that overlaps love, lust and violence...quickly and to the point!(Pun intended!) Thank you
