Her Body

Her Body

Her body

…and how I would barter my soul

For one more night of requited love,

Lost in the shambles of passion

Consumed by the flames thereof—

 

scorched by the pulse of my heart

I need your soul to be engorged

With mine,

As the moment assimilates you,

And I in the redder lush of wines

 

Feel the soft caress of your lips

In sacrilege betwixt the Lord’s eyes

Enveloped by delirium

Indulgent; I ask that you try—

 

And I will become your hands

Like tethered silk on your skin

Indulging a while, the creamy coat,

adopting you as ecstasy’s twin.

    OMGosh!, you romantic man, Paul. I was speechless when I first read this poem and had to take a few minutes to comment. I can hardly type – this poem is so evocative. The first stanza puts the reader on notice that this is a memorable, passionate verse. Excellent phrasing, dear poet. Great work.

    The sheer power of this piece for me beside the effective first line that allow us to drown at once to Your words, is that I found it totally manly, I can feel the man’s heart, spirit, desire and essence, expressed in the most deep and emotive way, the primal need to unite with his woman, this fine little poem of Yours dear Paul stands in the top of Your bests, You must write more of those ones, and I know Your lovely wife will admire it with a picture of hers, now are You all men love blondes? lol

      I would like this one to be posted in W.N, but You told me You can’t post the same poem in both sites write?
      The truth is I was writing something which reminded me with this one.

        Yeah there is some stipulation that you cannot post on multiple sites. Truth be told my wife is a brunette, though I do have a liking for blondes. I didn’t want it to seem too manly, but these thoughts do seem to introduce themselves too often not to be shared. Thank you again my friend for appearing on my page, you are always most welcome here my friend. ~Paul

    Paul my friend, Your poem is perfectly flowing with profuse passions, thus only a true man can express it the way You did, that what my words mean.

    Blessing to Your beautiful brunette, and You her adorer.
