The Pathos of Dearth

I make a mockery of the chasm I exult in my sarcastic enthusiasm The space between us causes A sweet reunion amidst the pauses I feel a vicarious, carnal avidity Awakening within me a certain lucidity, An impetus to slake my yearning To adorn my heart with your returning Though I know that after I ignite I will thus extinguish my appetite I seek such concupiscent opulence For this room's two occupants Though I know this oasis is transitory It's still such a silken and sumptuous story
