Treasure Island

Martina Moriarty

(15/04/1964 / Kerry)

I Got You Under My Skin


Every inch of me
feels you
no escape!
hostage to all my desire's
you...
the centre of all my want's
do 'you' need me?
heaven...
is a place I visit
in my dreams
raw scars healed
by the hasp
of your soothing breath
dying?
I come to life...
your touch etched
on the cry
of my sinful bones
wishing!
your touch to be real
I awake...
hungry for the night
yet...
nobody?
knows this but me.
