lust

you'd think it would be easy to give in to temptation

but no, not when it's him i'm tempted by

(this instinctive dance takes both of us)

my entire body attracted to him

like iron filings to a magnet

but the magnet's in a glass case

(ohh, you can look but you can't touch)

that's as close as i can get

but i'm held there

mesmerized

craving his touch

longing for his taste

bittersweet,

tasted once and never forgotten

(i'm melting from inside)

it takes two to tango,

they say

(i'll wait a little longer)

a spark locked inside me

needing his permission to be released

but meanwhile it's burning me up inside

as i wait for the other half of the sinuous line we form

(just a little longer)

but it takes both of us

can't he feel the heat emanating from my body

calling out to him like a primal howl

a dark heat,

a painful heat

but it's been around since time began

we thirst for it even though it hurts

(and it's not a want, it's a need)

the thought of him opens a dam

sends scalding passion pouring from between my legs

it's tantalizing, frustrating

almost a kind of agony

(you don't even realize how much i need you)

but it's beautiful

this is purely physical

and though there's nothing more exquisitely mysterious

than what we term love

this isn't it

but it's stunning

love is beautiful

but sensual desire can be so much more satisfying

(not that i'm satisfied yet)

you'd think it would be easy to give in to temptation

but no, not when it's him i'm tempted by

(this instinctive dance takes both of us)
