Tonight I say we let our passion
Pour out in that disgusting, unglorified fashion
If you think you could be so brave

And if pounding hearts could keep it
I swear I’d take this secret
Straight to my undesired grave

So can we get down to it?
My caution, to the wind I threw it
You think you’re ready for this?

Tonight we forget the rest
Your trembling hand burns my chest
Nothing else exists but this bliss

Tomorrow we’ll wake up with regret
But to this moment there is no threat
We fall asleep with a guilty smile

Learn of this betrayal they never will
This memory your shame will kill
As for me, I’ll hold onto it for quite a while

All I can say is wow. There is nothing I would change about this poem. It's really nicely polished.
