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.

    * “I Could Feel The Beautiful Shadows of Desire Rising Amid Myself As I Viewed This Very Powerful, Stimulating & Indiscribable, Verse * My Dear Sweet Beautiful Debbie * Yet My Desire Seems to Have Spawned Itself Amid The Bed of Burning Love * A Pedestal This Treasure Shall Set * Aside The Perfect Beauty of Yourself * My Luv, Always * Sarah.”*

    Nice descriptiveness in this presentation. One item needs correction in the last line of your second verse: replace "infernal" with "inferno". The word "infernal" is an adjective" while "inferno" is a noun.
