Longing and desire
So delicious, so ripe
Like a juicy blood red cherry
Ready to be eaten
The wetness and sweetness
So divine how can I resist?
Desire so consuming
it places me on shifting sand.
Goosebumps tickle my chest and my mind
My heart is arrested
Overcome by the surge and
the magnet of attirance.
Body. Heart. Soul.
Pulled towards the subject of my affection
Craving and wanting to be as one.
Should I resist? Should I surrender?
But love just is.
