0256 My Lover [08 May 1999]

The passion,
This incredible taste.
The feeling of rightness.
I know where I’m going.

It’s straight into the arms
Of the lover I have
Who consumes my desire
With every cascade of sound.

I burn with the fire
I sing and I fly.
There’s no other choice
But to be with my lover.

I’ve ignored this feeling
For a punishment
I believed that
I deserved.

But my lover awoke
Flinging the inhibitions from me
Like a vile, disgusting monster
Threatening my very life.

And so I sleep with my lover,
Safe, desired, comforted.
Knowing that I will be
The greatest I can be.
