the reason

don’t just stand there looking pretty
you’re the reason for my capricious whimsies
I long for your passionate kisses one minute
want your gentle embrace the next
bathing in moments of tender loving
right before this heart’s taken over
by the desire to tear off your mask
and swallow your soul

you’re the reason for this want, oh,
a want
more fickle
than the weather
