Desire Me

My body was scorching with the intense heat of desire, longing.

But now, I feel exceedingly cold within.

Just like the renowned Ice Queen

Whose trust in humanity was broken to her chagrin,

Ever since you committed the venial sin

Of ignoring the Garden of Love I was tending

My fragile heart needs immediate mending.

I find it hard to breathe

As the heavy air stifled my breathing

Forcing myself to stop pining,

Numbing my broken soul and my bruised feelings.

I gave you my all but what did it yield?

Nothing but a small glance,

A modicum of chance

Whenever you see fit.

Now I’m nothing but a ghost in the shell.

Living in a limbo,

Trapped in a Nightmare on Elm Street.

Oh please, I beg for my release.

Unchain me and let me be free.

Love Me, Desire Me, or Let Me Be.

What will it be?

Your guarded heart,

Mind, and soul

Was locked in a deserted fortress

Surrounded by the shivering sands

Under the scorching heat of the sun.

The rare key,

That could give you liberty,

Was taken by someone across the sea.

Will you open your citadel magically?

Or should I pry it open?

Force my entry?

Seize it with suave and gallantry,

To make you fall for me,

Only think of me.

So now, how should things be?

I Desired to be Fire

In the early days,

I yearned to be water.

Unambiguously existing

To satiate your ravenous mind

And to quench your parched soul.

But nowadays,

All I desire is to be fire,

To scorch your smooth skin,

Forever leave my mark

Interred in your mind, 

Body and soul.

In that way, 

Even if we’re faraway

You’ll fondly reminisce of

Our shared moments

In lieu of being 

Lackadaisical, blasé,

Disremembering everything

Akin to becoming a blank slate.
