why won't you let me take you ?
I know it's wrong,
but I've come so far
and bled my soul before you –
the air is sweet with your beauty;
I can feel you consent with a kiss –
no other is here
it's only us,
no sin between;
nothing but a pure love –
I beg of you
... please
I am open before you
with all my truth and honesty and heart –
one may fight such mighty urges,
but by all the gods in heaven
you are all I need
and I can't let you go,
for if I do
I must live with the dreadful shame
that part of me is lost forever
and neither one of us would be complete
