That these feelings are not real?
This closeness, this desire
Right here before my eyes
Looking into your eyes
The answers are all there
A burning fire, burning so hot
Raging passions
Heightened by your touch
Oh such bodies rush so lush
Gently seeking, gently caressing
Gently engulfing to be engulfed
Consume to be consumed
Wrapped up in those arms of yours
Wanting more and more of this body
Softly whispering
I want you, need you
Still looking into each other’s eyes
Deep, deep, deep oh so deep
Flesh on flesh
Oh the body heat

We may seem worlds apart
We may seem to be opposites
But do they not say
“Opposites attract”
Yet I know what is inside of us
We have many public faces
But hey we know our real face
It lies deep inside
A lousy isolation
Seclusion so private
That sets us apart
We have our reputations
These need to be met
High flyers
We laugh and joke
The odd poke
We do what we want
We go anywhere we want
But there is a longing need
We’ve been taken to the cleaners
We’ve been taken to be the fools
We’ve just been their tools
We’ve tried to laugh it off
Loads of scoff
Loads of shrug it off
But it damn well hurts deep inside
We’ve now become nobody’s fool
Yet there is a yearning
We work to fill the gaping hole
But yet we know why
The fun, frivolity
The Latte, Mocha, Cappuccino
But deep, deep down inside we know why
The one night stands are not in my lands
Two lives explicitly entwined
It’s the warm embraces
It’s the feeling of being needed
It’s the pure fantasy to reality needed
It’s the feeling of drowning in pure ecstasy
Love without treason
Love without a reason
Two bodies entwined
Drinking up each other’s wines
Two bodies not wanting to let go
Two bodies hungry
Two people devouring each other
Well a girl can dream can’t she?
That someday it’ll be a maybe

The summer love
The summer I loved you
It was so brief
Yet I was so happy
Happy to walk hand in hand
Walking in the soft sand
Paddling my feet
Skirt hitched up
But all you could do was watch
It was if you were afraid
Afraid of the freedom
Freedom to be yourself
A freedom beyond caring
Yet you knew this sand and sea
Is where I love to be!
It’s where I can be free
Free as the wind
Free as the birds in the sky
Yet you hold back!
What has happened to your inner child?
The one we all had as a child
The one who laughed and cried
Why oh why did you let yours die?
I hope that one day you’ll read this
In the hope that you’ll live a life so free
Not shackled by society
Not shackled by the responsibility
Go wading in the sea
Feel the breeze
Feel the sand between your toes
And let all the worry and woes
Go, go and go
Then maybe you will come back to me
And live that summer with such love
And a glow
