Erotic Love



It must be the chemistry that makes the lover pant.
It must be the alchemy that makes the lover cant.

It must be the pirouette that makes the lover turn.
It must be the silhouette that makes the lover burn.

It must be the aroma that makes the lover swoon.
It must be the diploma that makes the lover croon.

It must be the promenade that makes the lover dance.
It must be the esplanade that makes the lover prance.

It must be the neophyte that makes the lover cede.
It must be the proselyte that makes the lover need.

It must be the exotic that makes the lover gust.
It must be the erotic that makes the lover lust.
