My Personal Cocaine


I’d love to swim in a sea of you,
Or Better yet
Your private sea.
For it’s quite amazing
how I feel nothing,
Unless of course it pertains to you.

You're like a stimulant without a pill,
A drug upon consumption
And its funny how when you leave
My nose bleeds a little.

    wow wow wow... (again) - this is not about lovemaking ALONE but also about sensual VERY intimate being together.... VERY good. (Report) Reply

    The nose-bleed metaphor has a certain poignancy - later, the physicality of love's expression moves beyond mere coke-like addicition. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply

    This is absolutely fabulous David and described exactly how having someone love you equally, makes you feel! I remember it well and can say that all adversity that I met along the way, was nothing with My Personal Cocaine by my side....love is a wonderful gift. Very inspiring too it seems! Smiling, having just finished my final exam and am a free as Tai can be. great first read of my day. (Report) Reply

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
