Burning Desire - Poem by Lizelle 'Leasel' Martins

Tell me what to do
Tell me what to say

When you close to me
I don't know what to do
I can't breathe
Your touch
Burns through my flesh
Right through my heart
Right through my soul
But it feels good

And when we apart
I feel lost
I feel so cold
I'm like a flower
Without its petals

The sound of your voice calms me
Thoughts of you comfort me
But I long for your touch
You near me
Gasping for air
But I know that you will breathe with me
As you hold me tight
Not ever letting me go

I find peace
I find comfort
I find love
I find joy
I find happiness
I find it all
In your arms

I find this and so much more
Being with you...
