The heat that suffocates me it is not the air that surrounds
The heat is suppressed inside me
One can not infer such body heat is lust or a status of a body temperature
I who is inside this body could hardly explain it
I forbid this soul to go one more step further
Its an agony to let it languish naturally
Seem like it will persist foreverThe heat is suppressed inside me
Just like me, a soul suppressed in a body
