Come By My Window

Lover, this night ticks endless
and I am a fire
that must spread
across your perfect body

In the dark of the night
come by my window

Lover, this relentless need
leaves me blank
of all but your presence
replaying, looped and endless

In the heat of the night
come by my window

The sparks as our fingertips connect
I’ll be drained as I am stoked
at the interface of our passion
I’ll be drunk but laser focused
How you consume me

Lover, I need your light
there’s fuel in your whispering voice
but I need more tonight

Because I can’t leave the house
because I can’t be seen to go out

Come by my window…

[2018]

N.B. Please don’t leave the house; stay home, save lives! 🙂

Thanks for reading.

  1. This is probably my favourite of your works here Tom, some of the lines are sublime, particularly this:
    “The sparks as our fingertips connect
    I’ll be drained as I am stoked
    at the interface of our passion
    I’ll be drunk but laser focused
    How you consume me”

    Enjoyed it very much.

    1. Wow, thanks Hannah! I had discarded this one as I felt it was just a poor man’s version of I’m On Fire by Bruce Springsteen. Coming back to it now, I feel a bit more love for it. 🙂
