an interplay (freeverse)

a caricature of love, 
the depths of desire

lust filled itself in the empty places;
colonized the territory beyond the limits of seduction

this flesh had trapped an essence; 
electricity sparked on the skin,
memories became tactile, 
imprinted eternally between the space of life and death

unfolding time rains specks of dust,
cluttering the caverns of a soul

catharsis built the tomb,
enclosing the brutality of passion

a once eschewed existence; 
now drowning in itself

ecstasy burned a scar
lust dug the hole
desire swallowed the earth
and I am what love left behind.
