Did you know desire’s a terrible thing

It makes the world go blind

But if desire, desire’s a terrible thing

You know that I really don’t mind

What mystic potion desire?

Stirred or shaken?

Bittersweet liquor

divined from holy water

distilled by separation

roused by flurried senses

I long for your essence

thirst for your touch

crave the fruit of your creation


don’t let me feast alone
