Burning for YouA Poem by Kate P. Lamb
This has no affiliation with BÖC aside from the title
The way your eyes sear me,
With each silvery look you give,
They way your fingers scorch my skin,
With each feather-light touch,
I burn for you.
The way your lips curl into a smile,
Each time I say those three words,
And the emotion in your voice,
When you say them back
Sets my heart ablaze
I yearn for you.
Each memory of our time together,
That blissful summer
That seems so long ago
When we sat by the ice caves,
Or when I fell asleep in your arms
While nostalgic movies played
I ache for you.
The way you clutched me in the night,
Breathed my name into my ear,
While our desire reached frenzy,
And bruised us both with passion
I quake for you.
The way all that seemed a dream,
How they keep me from falling,
Into monotonous insanity
I count down the days
Until I’m dreaming again
I wait for you.
