Love’s Fluttering

Love’s Fluttering

Seduce me with kisses
My heart beats strange
Thought I had you 
But it was a butterfly

Come back
Teach me to be human
Tickle my nipples
Catch my groin in a breath
Say those words

Thought we had a pact
But our loving
Was bare skin deep
You left
Now I’m a puff of smoke
Listless and lost

Lift your eyes upon my smile
Shine on my dark alley
Be a song
My infinite desire quenched in a kiss
