I want to gaze for eternity
upon your molten copper eyes under pale moonlight.
I want to hear your lion’s heart beat
calming the thump, thump, thumping of my fractured heart’s song.
I want to feel the heat of your hands
warming my frightened body, burning fire in my soul.
I want to taste my tears as they fall
while we drown in tempestuous impassioned love-waves.
