You are the flame,
that burns in my heart.
you are the sweet water,
that quenches my thirst.
you are the beloved,
and I hold you up for all to see.
dance with me, my beloved,
dance and share in the revelry
of the stars and the planets
spinning into drunken bliss,
as I look into your eyes,
and see none other than the face of desire.
