Youth on fire

Feverish energy

Unbounded urges

All of life’s passion —

The raucousness of youth

The restlessness of hormones

The mind in daze

The heart on fire

The almost-touches, the almost-grazes

A glorious pot of burning gold

Bursting to swathe you, all over

In gold, in silver

In silver, and in gold;

Swimming in the glory

Never felt so good.
