The Burning Wind from the North

That moment of desperation when a lover is to walk away…

The Burning Wind from the North

If I close my eyes and let my senses run wild
Would it work, would it have an effect?
~
As the north wind blows in
A thousand small pimples ‘set up camp’ across my skin
~
There’s fire in the air
That ignites into my lungs
~
Burning through my blood
Bubbling and boiling blood
~
Bubbling and boiling blood: for you
So if I was to close my eyes, would you understand me?
~
Would you know why I gripped so tightly:
To your hips
~
(As if they were your heart and soul)
So neither would let go
~
If I open my eyes
Would it be your face I see?

I love this, I really do. So emotive. I love the part about the hips being theheart and soul, the words you’ve used like ‘ignites’ and ‘gripped’ really conveys how strongly this person feels. Love it.
