Oh to feel loves exquisite ache

That desperate longing

That naked want

Feeling so alive in the torment

While craving the fix

Of that heady foaming brew

To quench the thirst of desire

And when that significant soul

Who holds my captive heart

Is but a kiss away

I am dragged from sorrows

Unfathomable depths

And bitter anguish evaporates

Like dew in the morning sun

And euphoria fills every pore

And in that perfect ecstasy

That blissful state of love

I remain until I am again alone
