High Wire Lover

I’m a high wire lover. When you give me a squeeze
I start to tremble from my heart to my knees.
To one burning kiss like a moth I’m drawn,
One gentle wind and my loving is gone
As I fall!
Just when you think you had me,
It’s like you never knew me at all.

I’ve traveled the world, lived every occasion,
At one time or other held every persuasion.
If I give you my loving, I’ll love you only,
But don’t ever believe that I’ll be lonely
When I fall!
Just when you think you caged me,
It’s like you never held me at all.
