As cold as frostbite
even in summer;
hot as a sauna
on a winter night;
breathless as lovers
while sleeping alone;
trembling as if chilled
while cuddling the kids;
heart beating as fast
as nightmares at rest,
or as slow as sleep
when lifting weights;
dizzy as a dog
chasing its own tail;
bland as Tabasco
to a tongue gone numb.
