CAPTIVE

You fill me with fire and my insides burn,

I know what you are, but I'll never learn.

I see the risk in each menacing glance,

In this game we play, this dangerous dance.

Your precious smile, your jagged stare,

You could kill me and I wouldn't care.

I'm on the edge, afraid to fall,

I know you won't catch me or save me at all.

I feel your breath creep down my spine,

I know my control is no longer mine.

The way you talk, the way you touch,

I've never wanted you so much.

You break down my walls, you take my hand,

You know I'll surrender to your demands.

You kiss my lips, I close my eyes,

I swallow all of your clever lies.
