Rinse Me, Numb Me

No more guises † †
Just look into my eyes † †
Every word said, from now † †
Will not be a lie † †
But every word about to jump † †
From your lips shall die † †
Because your carnal cravings † †
Will eat them alive. † †
†† †
I'm slowly dissipating † †
But I know you can revive me † †
A fallen tree, I sleep here † †
Slipping into lifelessness †
But I feel so ravenous † †
And I know you can feel † †
The thumping of my heart † †
It's eager; deeply. †
†† †
You crawl up to me † †
With a different face † †
Different intentions † †
Breathing different air †
I inhale your energy † †
My longing embraced † †
I want every trace of innocence † †
Completely defaced. †
†† †
Overpowered † †
By this yearning†
We want, we crave † †
And weíre still learning † †
I cannot feel a thing † †
But a burning hunger †  
You cling to me † †
I invite you in. †
†† †
Of course, I do, I crave your skin † †
Itís a liquid I wish to immerse myself in † †
Your scent rinses me † †
Keeps me within your carnal hold, † †  
Let the numbing begin.
