Just a glimpse is not enough. Oh how I love this one. Our desire for someone will not be satisfied with just a glance we need the complete attention directed to the object of our desire. Good write.

You have described it well enough. 'Anything that you have to do and anything that has to do anything with you add to my desire for you' is an experience that is common for lovers to go through. Your comment, 'A Glimpse just adds fuel to the smouldering fire.' is so true! To answer to your note: Yes we can and we do.

Anything that you have to do and anything that has to do anything with you 'add to my desire for you'. What a nice way of seeing love! I am amazed.
