The fire ran through me everywhere my lips brushed your skin.
Nothing I had felt in the past, it seemed, had ever come close to this.
My mind blown.
Later I would reflect upon it. Had I ever known love? Was that what this was?
I’d known passion.
This though, this was electric fire. Coursing through me from every point of touch.
I understood now, all those poets past and present.
Your voice alone was enough to raise the fine hair on the back of my neck, my skin would pebble, and my nipples become taught.
Lust and longing were mixed with a healthy dose of desire, all rolled into one messy ball that would then pulse back and forth through my body.
Finally, I understood why love sent people insane. For this surely is insanity.
How does one live like this, day in day out? Longing for that touch once again.
Parting is such sweet sorrow? Hell no. Parting was hell, there was nothing sweet about it.
Give that feeling back to me again. Let me truly live once more. Take my pain from me, take my shame, I don’t care. Give me love, give me life, for surely the two are one.
Memories? I want none of it. I want only to revel in love. Roll about in it’s sweaty juices, feel that scent of you upon my breath, that weight of you upon my body.
For there is nothing in this world that will ever make me feel truly alive like this again.
Everything else pales into insignificance.
I am lost to you for ever, if you’ll only take me, and give me back my true self once again.
I now know pity.
For those that have never loved.
Never known love.
Never given or accepted love.
Those, I mourn for – let me never be one of those again.
