Sabbath Lust


It's like waking up in the middle of the night and sitting up in a cold sweat.

It's like crossing the city street at the wrong time and almost getting hit by a delivery truck.

It's the thrill of riding the latest rollercoaster ride at your favourite amusement park.

It's like being a kid and going out for your first Hallowe'en and being faced with corpses and goblins at the neighbours house.

It's like waiting outside the hospital delivery room to hear the news.

It's like being briefly caught in an undertow on a bright summer's day before being released.

It's the way you look in a pair of blue jeans, it's the thought of your smooth long legs, it's the thought of our hands clasped together under the covers. It's the picture of pinning you up against a wall for the first time. It's the perfection of your smile, and drowning in your eyes.

Pure, Clean, Sabbath Lust.
