Ocean And Flames

Shivers down my sides and spine
I can feel Chilled air
Seeping through the cracking windows
Unkempt hotels do not
Take responsibility
For my chill tonight

He lies on his side, in slumber, naked ivory
Leaving me lonely
Unsatisfied, aching breathing in confusion

Moonlight pours through the squares of window.
Patterns from the spreading glass,
Paint obscure portraits on my open thighs

Lying alone while together I gasp and sigh
Feeling that fire ball of familiar hurt well up inside.
It centers, rests on my chest and burrows deep

Now I question What could make his flesh burn
Until his manhood could rise and march
Through the desert to the ocean

Soon the dreams overtake me and dawn exists
I awake to him
Burning flesh marching through ocean

Fire and water co exist in one moment
Flames lick and waves lap
My lover, My god for the moment
Keep me here always!
Until I must retreat back into my burning hell
