Fever painted me all over the body
with its warm kisses of love
for a duration unknown.

Taking everything aside of my own being
it was a marvelous feel
to be cocooned into the grip
of this thin frenzy from head to toes,
it was immensely ecstatic to
feel the passionate warmth over the skin,
and was delirious
to be caressed by its softness beneath the shell.

I want the fever to grab me forever
and want you
to be my fever.
