As I spin, and whirl, and twirl
our eyes connect across the room
and electricity throngs
as I circle and gyrate toward my doom
It burns, this wildfire within me
I ache as it threatens to consume me
I lose control, give this burning to you
it has taken over, I seem to stare right through you.
As I move through the crush, rhythmic searching
your eyes a dim beacon in the dark
and the light of a thousand candles burning
as I reach you, lower my lids, acquire my mark.
It churns, these fraught, scattered feelings within me,
I break like a shipwreck on the rocks of me
I crave control, to give this over to you
It could drown me, lost in the depths of you.
