you & i are animal lust
and human emotion
entangled in wild passion
lips our link to each other’s souls
you always touch my heart first
before anything else
but then hit every last place;
scents, intense, intents, consent, relent
sweet chords, rhythm, symphony, crescendo;
so blazing we tattooed fire & scorched time
permanent imprint of our fusing
our sins are written in the stars
