To touch

to feel

that which is forbidden.

To know that even though

the dangers that surround us,

pull us apart at every turn

will not destroy how your skin

feels against mine.

How the feel of your lips

send shivers across my skin

as we dance under the stars.

Promise me

you will not abandon me,

leave me to the cold darkness

where you found me.

Show me

what words cannot say.

That our love

jealous rage means to destroy

will survive the coming storm.

Promise me

that our love will transcend

time and space

and that the heat

you shine down upon me

will forever

warm my dark soul.
