I don’t want a love with soft edges 
or a love that’s gentle, polite or timid.
I want a love that licks its lips 
and begs for seconds. 
I want a love that breaks headboards 
and disturbs the neighbours. 
I want a love that sleeps in 
and a love that stays out late. 
I want a love that smears its lipstick 
down my neck like warpaint. 
I want a love run wild. 
I want a love like sun fire. 
I want a love that starts riots 
and roars in defiance. 
I want a love that’s mad, 
fierce and full of fight.
I want you, now, here, all night.

+ Beau Taplin
