What have I done to my heart and my soul
Going into a world where desire will rule
A stranger has taken possession of me
And I simply don’t know if I want to be free

Ever so slowly and gently he leads
Shall I trustingly follow his every need?
Teasing and playing..with fire and ice
Do I dare believe this may be paradise?

His words echo softly and gently each day
As I listen I know I go further astray
Away from the usual romantic desire
I think I am playing with a dangerous fire!!

Is this not a game to this stranger of mine?
Yet I keep going back to him…time after time!
A message a day..I never know what he’ll say
But with sensual words he prepares me to play

My heart pounds so fiercely, I can hear it at times
Is he telling the truth, or just making up lines?
Knees knocking and shaking with anticipation
I fear through the net, he can feel the vibration!

Is he leading me into a world of deceit?
God I hope not..the stranger seems rather sweet
How shall I tell if he is what he seems?
This stranger who enters my thoughts and my dreams

Though frightened of feeling so helplessly caught
My soul burns with fire…deliciously hot!!!
Perhaps I’m a fool with this game that we play
Still I wait and I wait for his message each day

In daydreams and night-dreams I want him to stay
And with trust in my soul, beside him I’ll lay
So where do I go when I finally awake?
Do I offer my soul for this stranger to take?

And when the time comes will I know who he is?
Will he want to be mine as I want to be his?
Will my touch light a fire that will not go out?
And will he decipher what I am all about?

Does he ache for my touch, as I’ve yearned from the start
Have I captured his breath as he’s captured my heart
With his words full of yearning, where lies his goal?
This stranger who tethered my heart and my soul……
