Shivers of delight rush over me,
leading me out of control.
I fight hard against the longing
that fills my soul.

The gentle ache builds
into sweet pain.
Inside the tears fall like rain.

Hot, red and warm
the blood courses through my veins,
each heart beat whispers your name.

The longing for your touch,
is more than I can bear,
yet I must...
for I can not be there.

Dreams awaken me in the
still dark night,
my empty arms ache to hold you tight.

Passion whips my body,
tears at my soul,
I moan as the ache reaches my very core.

Softly I cry,
how much more can I hide?

I wrestle with these emotions,
till the dawn appears.
Slowly I wipe away my tears.

I can not be there,
to another I belong.
He has my body,
my heart and soul you own.

Absolutely raw with emotion.
Riveting and lovely.

How much more can we hide?
How much more can we take?  
Waiting for the absolution...
Awaiting never-coming fate.

Thanks for sharing this, is always helpful to read others inner thoughts and realize we aren't alone.
