D - Desire

The world can call me anything
I'm something that money can't buy
They scorn at my bright red lips
While I fly free like a butterfly

I am a woman, tall and proud
Not burdened by the conventional norm
I choose to live life on my terms
I'm not shaken by the rain or storm

My body is my creation of art
I adorn it with things I love
I don't have to answer anyone
I'm only responsible to the one above

Love for me is a scary feeling
The safe bet always seems to be lust
It lasts for a while and wanes away
While love somewhere turns into dust

I'd rather stay alone and live my way
I do not want anything to tie me down
I want to depend only on myself
Being responsible for my smile and frown

Then one fine day, you came along
Enveloping me with your presence
I got entangled in your aura
Flowed along your hypnotic essence

You filled up every sense of mine
My soul split craving for you
The way you feature in my dreams
Oh dear, if only you knew

Come near to me, my Adonis
Lets come together and create fire
For now, let love take a back seat
Just for once, be my desire
