Down on my back
Down on my knees
Delightful necessity
With no apology for my curves, my behind
My belly, my sounds
Obscene as it maybe
Obsession has gotten me

Drowning in joy
Feeling high while I'm drifting below
Glinting surfaces mellow and moist
Take my up, take me
Let me enjoy
Feeling wanted and used like toy
That's not bought but has been given
That won't be kept hidden
And is too dear to be destroyed

Down on my back
Down on my knees
Deliciously dirty
Without apologies for my looks, my lust
My breath, my bust
Obscure as it may be
I'm observing the one who is me

Drowning in joy
Carried sideways by waves in convoy
Crying while I am laughing
I'm spoiled
But it's good
I want more of this joy
'Til it all gets so hot
It explodes
'Til my cheeks turn all flush
And the flesh felt by hands, felt by hearts
Becomes pounding and red

Pure pleasure
No disgust
No disguised measure of quality
Pure appealing
No afterwards
Cleaning up
Nothing but
Summing up
Kisses and humming

Drowning in joy
Carried sideways by waves in convoy
Crying while I am laughing
I'm spoiled
But it's good
I want more of this joy
'Til it all gets so hot
It explodes
'Til my cheeks turn all flush
And the flesh felt by hands, felt by hearts
Becomes pounding and red

As long as there's joy
Lasting 'til we're curled up in a coil
As were we one before egos unfold
It's okay to let go and enjoy
In togetherness to be withdrawn
While the scent of something fresh and warm
Lingers on
Lingers on
