Plush greenery bear
Imprints of our devotion
Bouquet of kisses
Fiery coals of dark passion
Unabating, smoldering

Cool beat, hot party

Busy feet and vintage wines

wild nights, sour mornings

Comfort zone polluted,

love ignited, lust beckons

A little hesitancy,

a thin thread of sanity,

Insanity seem well come


Serene landscape about to be defaced

broken artwork, splinters, charred pieces

a need to be stoked

Risky; more fun, addicted


A throbbing to be appeased;

an intense provocation of

heightened tremor,

seeking a-dousing


Forbidden, untouchable,

blatant hunger,

drinking thirstily, parched

aching, yearning

Impossible made possible

by mutual consent


Seeking a release, an out pour, a satisfaction

embracing, renouncing, accepting

once and for all

Afraid you’d leave me wanting

for more.
