[Poetry] Sin, Sweat, Satisfaction

Sweat drips down disrobed bodies
Sheets clench between delicate slippery fingers
Passionate declarations echo through empty hallways
Ectasy comes in the form of lust, love, and lies

Irrevocable love reserved for husband and wife is shared between two lovers too young to cross the matrimonial threshhold

Legs spread in time spans that range from minutes to hours
Parents sleep, out of town, or simply at the market
Hearts race as risks are taken
Blank minds do not register nor do they care for consequences

Unprotected, Adam and Eve indulge in their biggest sin
The evidence of their fall from grace arrives months later
Hidden will be the growing seed and sickness resulting from that dreaded pink plus sign

Sin, sweat, satisfaction
Recipe for disaster
