I want you

I want you
the spark of your eyes
overshadows the neon lights

I seek you
everything that you are
the center of your being

I adore you
I need you
I love you

Where I am now
the wind kills
tongue turns small together

I want you
a constant gallop of hunger
mounted by need

My shadow is blurring
the evening fire going out
I'm losing myself too

I want you
until you are here
I smell flowers with no aroma...
