burning with you

your weight, so light
my body against yours so tight
an urgency in parting
once more you pull me close
then I will leave
you whisper please don’t go
innocent and curious this night
we have till dawn
only the candle knows
and when the cuckoo calls
again I shall run on
to shine this fairy tale
across another page
and when my glow becomes a burn
open the book and I’ll return
