Jeopardy

Answering the tyranny of blood
And beckoned by lust
I have returned,
Recalling the fever in your arms
And the treacherous fragrance of your easy smile:
This is the entrance to Hades,
The Via Dolorosa of my aching flesh.

Magnificent longing, all-encompassing, damn the consequences - a lyrical write, John.
