Like the image but I wondered the same, what makes them illicit?

Surely illicit comes in many flavors these days...descriptive words.

I think if you were to put illicit at the end of the line, it would satisfy everyone else. I get it, but it might be stronger to switch it around.

I totally get it. Good job.

I don'tt I need to know why the letter is illicit. Adulterous love letters?
Blackmail desired but not acted upon? I like the scope it allows me.

I felt the use of illicit insinuated an affair...I don't know if I assumed correctly, but the words gave strong imagery! Thank you for sharing. :~)

I agree with Sepiru. Mystery fuels attraction. Good read.
