497 Fear and Desire [07 August 2002]

can I stifle this fear
that caresses my inner thigh
while my heart beats erratic
I try to push it aside
as you come nearer
your body heat warming my skin
while your breath cools it
this mixture of emotion
tears me in two
as my body desires
you with every move
your muscles make sliding
under your glowing skin
my hands itch to feel you
but I keep them clenched
which will be victorious
my aching need for you
or my trembling fear of giving in?
