I never wanted
someone so bad.

You looked at me,
my insides started
to disintegrate.

My skin came
alive, started to
buzz, hum.

Your kisses set
all of me on fire.

Our hands, mouths
were everywhere;
touching, pulling,
tearing, tasting.

You writhed
under my skin.

Our passion
set the world alight.

Then they came;
put the fire out,
poured cold water all over.

Loud voices, drunk,
laughing, doors slamming,
making so much noise.

The moment melted
away, was lost forever.
