This heart of stone sleeps inside me
until you touch me
When your hand reaches for mine
it turns on the furnace.
My skin heats.
I try to cool it off by breathing but then
you kiss me.
My heart awakes and beats hard and fast
making up for the lost time spent in slumber.
You pull me close.
I can barely stand it.
The temperature reaches new heights
and Im melting.
Melting that stone lump of a heart into white-hot molten rock.
Burning inside me,
screaming for more.
Calling for you.
