Nose to nose and holding gaze
The lights and music low
Hands cup my face; I hold you close
Heart/time dance quick-quick s l o w
I hear your rapid, shuddered breaths
My fingers trace your nape and spine
We yearn to meld; such sweet duress
I close my eyes – pretend you’re mine
“Just one kiss”, I hear you plead
My chest ignites to molten fire
Time stops; blood rages primal speed
Temptation blinds with razor wire
“I can’t”, I whisper, trembling, small
World falls back. Agony. We’re done.
You were fantasy, my love, my all;
Darling, I could never stop at one.
