Who Needs Love? - Poem by Nicky McNeil

Passion and lust takes my mind
as I see you in the morning light
as my heart beats like a drum
even your breathing excites me

A passion spell have thou spun on me?
You made me offer my soul
gladly to the devil, for one embrace
one wet kiss, would be my eternal bliss.

All day, thoughts of you tease me
for when I taste you, I live again.
So long a fool, I waited for love
when all I needed was passion.

Passion from your body
warms me to the bone.
Passion from your words
engorges the vessels in my brain.

Nights in your arms, steeped in sweat
burning tensely within your body
waiting for the flood to overflow
as passion drowns the ache for love.

    Hello Nicky

    I like this poem, especially the last stanza about passion drowning the ache of love. It's something I can relate to easily. Looking forward to reading more of your work.
