Desire in the night is like
Rain splashing upon your face
Thunder coming down from the sky
It comes when you least expect it
Forcing you down to the ground.
Though you embrace it like
There will be no tomorrow
The desire that fills your very
Soul is like a burning inferno.
There is no space or time
Swimming in your emotions
You are lost to the outside world
Every breath is burning with desire
It's like it has swallowed you up
And once more you are consumed
By the fire with desire in your heart.
