THE EFFECT YOU HAVE ON ME

 

When asleep,
intent allows
I doze to dream
– aroused –
of you.

I wake to lust,
robust with hunger,
starving
for a glimpse of you.

And in a trance
I rise to seize
– to freeze –
an instant here
with you.

BUT!

I won’t retire
tried and spent!
Instead,
I slumber,
yet,
to dream of you.

Throughout the day
I crave
(I’m crazed!)
the lingering wants
I won’t release.

Desire
keeps me occupied:
my mind inside
unstable from the tease.

And time,
it passes,
fast escaping
– raping –
my increasing need
to lay at home
– alone –
and close my eyes
and doze,
aroused,
and dream.
