I want you here tonight, with eyes and hands
Ravenous, demanding to drink the silence of my inky curls.
I’ve given up every pale replacement, every word of hate,
I seek for the lagoon scent you left between satin and baldachin.
I ache for your lips leaving mine off-color,
Your smile – a beast cropping the armor inside my heart,
I void your fingers tracing the alabaster shadows of my skin,
I want you to inhale my name, to breathe me and let the violins play.
I have to elicit the colors of liquid sunshine when you speak,
Your untamed face when I hide my desires under a fake critique,
I long to feel you drain the winter out of my body,
And I’ve united vigor and passion against the dawn to come,
Following the rhythm of an ancient talisman to you,
A mistress of Cupid’s arrow, I dream to conquer your heart, tonight.
