I Only Want a Taste Please donít make me guess I donít want to have to consider the implications of your expression. Please donít spell it out for me I donít want to have to realize I donít want to recognize this moment: Almost passionate Bursting toward compassionate We could be teetering past friendship, But that is sure to make me fall. I only want a taste like the scent of cotton candy without the sticky mess. Please Whitewash your emotion Paint your sex in pastel colors It might be nice to feel you come but do not make me cross that bridge myself. If I taste you now will I tap you and wrap you for the rest of my life? I cannot recover from an addiction of that magnitude. And yet Perhaps You could finally sate my hunger But what if you did? When one ceases to be hungry, what can one do but sleep? Actually Iím afraid of satisfaction I know that it cannot be obtained In the end Iím avoiding completion I donít know what to do when the act is done.
