    • Didn't I tell you, what I believe... Did somebody say that....that love like that won't last? Didn't I give you all that I got to, give baby?


    How can you hide?

    What is so evident, so clear that it wears on your skin like boils?

    Even as you think, you dream, the kiss is like honey, but eats you like poison-ivy

    Like a man hanging by a thread over a cliff, is this love a dangerous thing that will haunt me for all eternity?

    Just a bit longer to make it

    Just a bit … a little bit longer


    What is it to define the limitation of passion?

    What is so evident that it threatens to incinerate everything?

    Whereas you think that the touch shivers your skin

    And kisses burn your lips like a lovely spice

    Deliriously tucked away in an memory, but like it

    You’re tucked away in a padded room

    Is it just a bit longer now?


    Why is it so dangerous holding the thing which is painfully obvious?

    When you think, you dream, the touch brings your world to the knees

    Like a man to die on Old Sparky

    And the electric embrace of the taboo drowns me in pleasure, pain and desire like BDSM

    With suspense that’s pounding and clouding my head

    The moment is… at hand…


    And so it comes, like lovers in throes

    Spasmodically, the evidential truth cannot be hidden;

    But, like Christ, would you deny yourself

    Deny me?

    For all powers of passion,

    The truth is my liberty

    And my prison
