The Idea of You

deadly-desire-29721You melt my defenses
As fragile as I am
With my fluttering heart
Beating out of control
Pausing to let you in
You and your heat
Steam rising from every pore
Confusing all the while
Because you’re not mine
Though in my dreams you are
In broad paint strokes
Thick like your hair
Fantasies can’t compare
But I keep trying
Because they’re all I have
Every morsel of you
Precious like the rain
Sluicing away my pain
Flowing like a river
Straight through my heart
Warm and inviting
You tear me apart
Without even knowing
And I am fragile
Consumed with wanting you
With feeling your fire
That lights my soul.
