Definitions will spawn in a new window (Wordnet):

I wanna be etherized on your table.

I wanna be etherized on your table.
It's easy to cover it with pretty words
and obscure the rawness with
a well placed
metaphor, but
the truth is blunt:
I want you.
Don't care if it's love or not,
I just want to nip your
and pin
you down beneath me.
Sometimes you drive me
crazy, and I think
you know it.
Look at me now with that
teasing glance and quirked
but you're gonna pay
the price.
In the end,
you don't really mind.
