Soothe me with your lips
Feast your eyes on my soul
Draw me into a basin with waves down you back
Flooding fruit with a fever, flesh imbued with a rolling attack

I fall deep in your mind with my eyes closed
Wrenching your hair like a rope
Your breast on my heaving brethon my neck
Venting secrets held deep in the bone
Our moans melt away… all the snow

Shimmer, glow, sparkle, flash
We shield our eyes from a lightning crash
Fused into a ribbon from river to glass
Distilling a light from yet unseen by man
Your radios flicker and apertures lack
You raise me up for a moment before we collapse
