Night moans

My body’s melting

My desire’s growing

I imagine things I shouldn’t

as my heart flutters to dark places

Is it my youth that makes me ache,

with insomniac eyes peering in the dark?

Seeking gratification without pause

Even when I can’t bear it any m0re

Even when I am sore

— —

My fragile skin wilts with heat

Sweat rivulets run over the curves

The tropical heat doesn’t help

I scream with want

With no response

— —

The gurgling geyser of desire

spouts again when I think of him

Does he know there’s a body in heat

thinking about him

in dirty, dark ways
