The promise held within a kiss
tears the senses down one
by one into the dampness of linen sheets
and the sacred musk torments the air.

My dream lover, come to me
in your darkest nightmare
ignite the flames of my lust
as you kiss my lips
feel my hunger like a dagger
sinking into flesh.

The bonds of freedom that hold
you to me and for me
where the angels cannot see
as we stand at the edge
of that sweet abyss
take my hand, love,
taste the liberty and fly with me.
