Let me sweep the sidewalks with my tongue Would you help me? Escort me on a tour along the ridges Of your perfectly straight teeth? Kiss me like the world right now isn’t reality And we’re 18 again too nervous because We’ve never been to another subdivision before Taking shortcuts we’re not sure about Meeting halfway in the middle Biting to hold on and not disappear Into the others great caverns. My own tongue dances without yours Tracing the backstreets of your mouth The alleyways and dips Teasing the gates to your pearly whites. Regardless of how often you move You never quite forget the roads leading home.
You will never know, I will never tell the speed My heart raced when we finally kissed that day That instant liberation from every other need Felt like we were the ones for Shakespeare's next play
Your perfume and shampoo smelled like a garden My conscious self flash backed to my last shower You finally tamed this creature out of the barred den The thirst is quenched, this lion king has found his lost power
