All I need

All I need

is warmth


to know you are by my side 


If I cannot smell your sweet breath,

If I cannot see your crooked smile,

If I cannot hear your ethereal voice,

If I cannot touch your skinny cupid's bow,

If I cannot taste your pouted lips, 

I thank the Lord

that I can feel your warmth


That I feel the radiation from your body to mine

That the warmth spreads

like an eagle's wings, courageously

like a viral infection, uncontrollably


I need not fear the cold

because passion never leaves me

As if my skin glows

and bright lights shoot out with the love of a thousands suns


I just need my thoughts 

And I am warm 

And being warm 

is a blessing of comfort and home.


I am thankful for this fire in my heart

that will never rest as I age

and though it may burn,

it keeps me warm
