When the Marks Show

His eyes are alight with fire
they’re burning bright with desire
you feel the passion building deep within
its thin rein vanishing

You know that soon you’ll feel the burn
that feeling you have come to yearn
wherein the pain and pleasure that it brings
makes your soul start to sing

While taking and claiming you as his own
when through his will’s made known
as tears of joy begin to flow
when the marks he gives start to show.
