Masked

   the heat was in your eyes that day in the park. bottles and chemicals were passed around the swings until they were gone and we found our way under a tree and sold ourselves a romance. desperately now, i fumble with buttons but your hands block my way. the red light is in my window, darling. you saw it when you walked in. it's why you walked in.

   hey now, touch me again. burn my skin red and kiss me until the ache is almost too much to bear.

   when the fever crawls through your veins i'm there to make it go away. but today you ran away, sugar. you missed your chance to return the favour.

   sex is only free when you're someone else for a day.
