You entice my restless desire

with words that taste like fire

They leave their mark upon my skin

but the sting is my sweetest sin

Through shattered glass I touch your face

condemned and alone in this empty place

I give you my body as a gift

in exchange for just one kiss

Though you deny me every time

I still long to call you mine

You are like water in my hands

falling slowly from my grasp

Or like the wind that whistles through

I yearn to take a hold of you

But you escape like an elusive thief

and where my heart was, there is grief.
