Loving you is like living on a primeval earth
seething with lava, volcanoes and suffocating air.
A waterless earth in early formation
Scorched with passion and burning with desire.
There is a limit to such love unless one seeks their end.
In your arms I fall apart in fearful abandon
and love every unguarded moment!
What cruel allure is this?
To which boiling hell have I been transported?
What witchery has captured my soul and made me
a willing victim? I cannot breathe for want of cool air
and life-giving water – I am dying, no doubt.
Yet how many times have I died this death
only to be reborn and die again in the flames of desire.
Release me, allow me time to revive
I am completely consumed by your burning passion and insatiable desire.
Who or what invented this cruel agony disguised as ecstasy?
I cannot bear it any longer – I cannot survive it, yet I am powerless to resist.
Have mercy, free me!
I am vanquished, held captive in dread and Bliss
Your love will be the death of me.
