I want to be inside of you
a fly on the wall of your mind
I want to lick your brain
cherishing the taste of its fluids
I want to swim in the cool blue of your blood
riding your veins like a roller-coaster
I want to be a chain of sparks racing down your spine
that excites each nerve in your body
I want to crawl under your skin
climbing your bones like a cliff over sea
I want to force-feed your anorexic mind
making it swallow the truth
I want to sit on the steel porch of your heart
just to see who opens the door
I want to be close to you
as one and a whole
but even when I'm inside of you,
never ever touch me.

I love the figurative language. I am wondering about the last line, it works beautifully and I love it. . .but it puzzles me. Excellent work.
