An affair hides the clocks of Time

under its brief encounters,

hides the desperate prayer 

for desire to keep flowing..

An affair defies Time and Death

in its mad pursuit of Pleasure,

an affair refuses to become 

just dry rose petals between pages

of some old book on a forgotten shelf.

I like your enjambment, technically speaking.
The word, 'hide', is emphatically appropriate for the subject matter, and "mad pursuit" is a perfect descriptive.
"Desperate" is an all encompassing emotion that permeates the experience.

The theme of your piece is that 'an affair' takes on a mind and life of it's own; makes its own choices, grinds out its own energy, catapults its participants beyond all that is familiar - the rules of love; the laws of nature; the finality of existence.
