Because I Love You

"... we’ll stoke internal fires
‘til you can’t take anymore."

Take my breath...
just like you took my heart.
consume my passion...
like we’ll never be apart.
Let me walk you on a journey where desires never fade,
where you’re satisfied beyond repair and never feel afraid,
let me open up your body like it’s never been before,
we’ll stoke internal fires ‘til you can’t take anymore.
It’s not about the craven... it is not an ego ride -
it’s because I love you.

Lay down your clothes...
and lay down upon my bed.
We’ll push the boundaries...
go where lovers fear to tread.
Feel my hands glide over you until your hunger cries,
experience the fever growing hot between your thighs,
a crescendo under blankets like a perfect symphony,
soaking every inch of you in love and memory.
It’s not done out of duty... nor a need to be the best -
it’s because I love you.

Close your eyes...
feel the warmth of my embrace.
Float your mind...
while I absorb your lovely face.
Allow your thoughts to wander to a bedroom true and pure,
where you never question reverence and you never feel unsure,
imagining a future where your lover treats you right,
where you’re adored and cherished, until the end of time.
It’s not about the casual... and not just primal greed -
it’s because I love you.
