The Vices of Our Virtues



The scent of your cologne,
Makes her feel less alone.

Between the softened sheets,
And those trembling heartbeats,
Lies a unison of decadence.

Decor of incense,
Exhales ever-so-slightly.
Silk robes wound tightly--
Curtains rustle,
Hair, disheveled.

Your hands release,
A realm of peace,
Lures you,
Back home to me.
