"Desire"

Updated on February 27, 2018

A yearning
   I can't begin to fathom.
A need
   I can't seem to conquer.
A want 
   I can never seem to have.

It washes over me like velvet.
It bathes me in silk.
It caresses me so softly,
     like a rose that will not wilt.

A flame full of passion,
burning ever so bright.
This desire I have for you,
     each and every night.

Love.
     Passion.
          Desire.
Let your senses shine.

Lust.
     Pleasure.
          Dreams.
Let yourself be mine.

The wind it feels it
     in every blow.
The rain drops it
     in every pour.
The sun senses it
     in every shine.

 

My face gives it away
in every smile.
My eyes show it,
in every stare.
My lips speak it.
in every word.
My ears hear it
in every whisper.

      It seems some of us like to get burned...at least, in a very few special cases, it's well worth it....;)

      Whew, this one is hot to the touch. I like the fact that you used few words to show these desires. Makes it more poignant.
