Don’t Take You From Me‏

Passion stirs in me a great reaction
A great flame stokes
Painstakingly burning
Ruthlessly rendering to dust the thick veins within me

You are that inferno
The unneutralized reaction
My breath
The canvass on which my epic is scripted
Don’t take you away from me, Daughter of Eve
Don’t deprive me of my breath
Don’t contrive to render me to death

Dear Maria
Reward my passion
With your compassion
Please don’t take you from me.
