My Haunted Heat

I gave into your touch
so sure heaven was on the other side
the forest fires in your eyes
burned a path across my flesh
Oh, my willing flesh
turned to you time and time again
needing your skin against mine
a weakness I've never known
too quickly became far too necessary
You were a beautiful lie
But now you're gone
and I've got the shakes
my skin keeps forgetting its loss
your hands still take
every haunted path they've ever travelled
your scorching lips still imprinted
on all the parts you claimed your own
And while I'm sure I'll grieve this loss
I'll move on and find other boys
I don't want to lose this heat
your body left with mine
