    And that say it's taboo, that thing that we do
    but how could they possibly, when even i don't understand
    the chills that flow up and through my body
    when even close to her i stand
    a simple touch sends the sparks up and down my spine
    and i began speaking words that have yet to be defined
    BURN FIRE! they so eagerly scream
    so ready to cut me open and watch my blood stream
    and out the corner of my eyes i see the nooses being tied
    as i nervously walk by
    for I am the next that they will judge and then condemn
    i feel the anger in their voices
    as they yell and scream just torch her
    because she wasn't made for she, but for him
    inescapable her forces and at any time i will confess
    that her love is the greatest that her love is the best
    but just as sure as i am that the sky above is blue
    i also feel and know inside that there's something special about this dude
    that grabs me and melt me within his hands
    i quickly turn into butter and disappear in the sand
    he looks at me softly and i see my future in his eyes
    his children in my belly
    his hopes in my cries
    and if there were a way I'd split myself in two
    because to both and yet to neither am i capable of being true
    such selfishness it seems
    i see them both in my dreams
    i awake frustrated and yet elated
    as i struggle to decipher what it all really means
    there are four walls and i can't escape
    what sound decisions can i make
    as i feel i am slowly threatening to unravel
    with his every stroke i contract, then release
    liquids like grained gravel
    the screams get stuck in my throat
    am i confused, absolutely
    not, nope
    i see her i see him
    high heels and a pair of timbs
    and i wish oh how i wish i knew what to do
    cause she makes me feel faint
    just as his sweat on my breast is beginning to disintegrate
    as it seems I'm stuck like clue
    to this thing they call
    taboo

    What I felt from this was the warmth of a heart's desire, and the frost that chills that warmth. Your word choice was precise poetess, awesome.
