A Lover Obsessed

I, a lover obsessed, tonight again despise

Need I endure a thousand deaths each time?

I know my pain is well deserved and

Like blades tie down an equal right

To balance this heart against this life


Sex lights up an empty mind but

Unlike mine enslaves equal time


Naked actress are you from my tribe?

Company of lovers cast aside for

Spilling sensual rhythms in their strides


The erotic heart plays a part divine

Although confusion sleeps in the sublime

Orgasm spent too many different times


Our bodies enslaved under this disguise

Longing for someone else’s touch tonight

Misunderstanding in pursuit of empty skies

Oh sex instead of leaving you behind

Color my thoughts with rainbow light
