My Downfall

not another word
not another step
Please leave now before we both do something we'll regret
this is wrong, but for the moment feels just so right
I had you out of mind until you stepped back into sight
you were my drug, my poison, my own brand,
everything I learned to live without
but now that you are here it's all been forgotten about
now here you are but a step away
and neither one of us is thinking sain
you close the space that left,
and now there is hardly and inch left between us
your body so close to mine
our lips brush......
Please leave now before we both do something we'll regret
not another step
not another word

The title & picture both fit the poem. Brilliantly done.
