Toxic Tango

Just like fireworks in the twilight you excite me.  
You make my skin warm and fill my eyes with heat.  
I attempt to run from the flames but the smoke clouds my way.  
The excitement.  
The high.
The rush that you provide seems well worth the burn.  
We dance hard , heart to heart however separated by the blaze. †
This dangerous fancy footwork feels like foreplay. I weep at the thought of being just for play. †
We hold hands and sear our palms.  
Fingers intertwined while we close eyes and cross the line.  
You feel like home, but youíre more like the neighborís beach house. †
No ďFor SaleĒ signs in sight but that side door swings open with the wind.  
Burglary isnít my crime of choice. I wonít enter without keys. †
Please, release me until youíre prepared to do more than lease me.  
I break away from your grasp, fast. I cry as I come down from my high.  
The water rises behind me, either way Iím gonna die. †
Toes tickled by the sand, I firmly stand.  
Backing into the waves means swimming into a daze guaranteed to consume my nights dreaming of the days I could feel your warmth. †
To reach for you and step forward sets the stage for the beaches view and torment or bitches brew.  
But why do you feel so for me? †
I can appreciate a riot even the quiet ones. †
Our song is quite some tune. Harps harping  and golden drums beat by Oshun. †
The ocean. †
The fire. †
Your eyes wide and deep like the feelings I keep in a lock box free from fuckery. †
Iím mesmerized by the flame only distracted by the calling of my name. †
When you say my name like that I canít turn away. I melt from the inside out as I fall into your arms. †
Safe from harm, I find solace as you cradle me longer than the day of a summer solstice. †
The fire remains lit. †
The addiction of the drug called desire brings me into your home  
where Iíll simmer †
until I expire. † † † † † †
†† † † †
