He was fire
His heated passion melted the ice
Pure desire
Untamed, un-named, a necessary sacrifice
This perfect stranger
Exuded signs of dangerous appeal
A vision through a frosted glass
Exotic, yet unreal
How did he saunter through trust's bolted door
She never really let him in
He took his touch of liquid flame
And burned a mark into her skin
Her skin
It sparked the lust she held within
The glowing graze of endless days
He
Impressed her with seductive waves
Of 
Simple, sinful, teasing ways
Never felt this way before did she?
He
Took advantage of her sensitivity
He
Took his name and carved it with a greedy tongue
On the breasts that held her breath
Inside her overfilling lungs
Her lips, his lips sang love to
Yet conveyed otherwise
Two lips she was convinced could
Take her to her lucid dreams
And leave her hypnotized, maybe paralyzed
But she forgot to look into his eyes
Or her skin made her ignore
It was different from what that skin
Experienced before
Nothing nude
Yet she felt naked
Her skin recognized no clothes
It starts with a chill
Gliding down the vertebrae of the spine
To the tips of the heels
To the tips of her toes
Everything appeared right
Though the pleasure didn't belong to her
In desperation, lust was love for the night
Her skin told her that
And she let him continue to ignite her
In numerous ways
He
Left her skin perplexed
The skin that undeniably
Betrayed her today
As he did the next
