I can feel you beside me
The heat from your body
Burning my insides
Without you
Even touching me

My cheeks feel flushed
So nervous am I
That if it were not
For my hands on my knees
I’d be shaking
Much more noticeably

Every part of me wants
You to touch it
And it’s like
Each cell is fighting with the others
For who will be first

On the outside I’m so calm
No-one would suspect the chaos
Building inside
Now I’m not sure which part of me
Wants you to touch it more

Between my lips
Or …
Between my hips?
Both feel like
An inextinguishable inferno

I stand up and walk away
Not having said a thing
I first sat down to say
