Kiss at sight

Strings clamped to the clouds above my head,
Attached to the corners of my psyche,
I’m viciously infatuated with your body scent,
I’m craving to cuddle on your lap
Like a stray, needy baby elephant;

You’ve got all your pieces at right places,
Emerging in an enigmatic prophecy,
It’s a pull I cannot avoid dragging into,
Going away from you is a hundred G-force;

Crushing my strength on atomic level,
You rush in my veins like smoldering magma,
I’m as helpless as a trapped rabbit,
My thoughts – stung by the air you exhale –
Exposing, escalating my dark secrets;

I need you like I need sharp-cuts in my throat.
You already cause me bleed inside.
It’s not a warning, but a promise.
Next time you trespass on my dreams,
You’ll be kissed at sight.

Spare me,
Or embrace like you’re my death,
Love me,
Or I’m afraid I’ll kill myself,
Kiss me,
Damn, kiss me right now.

    Well … I think this is really very intriguing … I may be mistaken but the image of the stray baby elephant made me think that you aren’t writing in an everyday New York cultural area.

      Thank you Georgia. The baby elephant reference came after watching a YouTube video, where the poor thing was desperately cuddling with humans… no, not at all an NY culture.

    I always write my own piece before reading anyone else….

    Oh the passion of want, to need that which we often can not have while awake 😉

    I was just watching a cartoon with elephants with my grand-daughter the other day…
    🙂 though my first thought was the horrid commercial for a disease where breathing is like having an elephant sit on your chest. We all need and want for affection.
