Keeping love under wraps is difficult, especially when it makes you this happy.

Burst of passion, overflows
Shadow plays on your fair face
As I'm pressed, I watch your feet
Slide beneath, slide beneath.

Quiver like a leaf, I'm dying
Under your mad relief
Of tension. This can't be
Right, yet it feels so
Like I'm complete, I'm complete.

Purple bruises worn like medals
Shown and shiny, veined and
Burning. Green-eyed yellowed
Monsters yearning only for you
Solely for you.

Pick me up, free my mind
From this science-steeped and poisoned prison
As I look into your eyes,
I see heaven, I can see heaven.

United, yet adversarially opposed
This star-crossed match, miraculously
Maintained with deception's hope
As before we've seen
The only means of our existence.

Secrecy.
But it's hard not to scream.
