Erotica, I Give in to Thee

The kiss
mouth probes deep
like humming bird
seeks the nectar of life.

The touch
skin to skin
gentle dancing fingertips
massage, caress, progress to joy.

No words
guttural moans and gasps
penultimate vulnerability.

Oh Erotica, I succumb to thee.
My body smiles, hums and throbs
as it melds into his.


Word Press Writing 201 Final Day Prompts: Β the word “pleasure,“, sonnet (14 lines: stanzas of 4, 4, 3, and 3 lines — rhyming not required in contemporary sonnet), and apostrophe (speaker in poem addresses another person, a personified object or emotion). Β I’ve enjoyed the class!

      Thanks, Al. Son and grandson coming for the weekend so needed to finish last night (Ben’s prompt comes about 8 PM the evening before the day of the assignment – Boston time).
      Yes – I’ve enjoyed the class and especially getting connected to others who enjoy the world of poetry!

      Thanks, Annie! So very nice to meet you in this class…hope to continue “meeting” you like this 😊.

      So glad you liked this one … It’s quite different from what I usually write — but that prompt “pleasure” and the end of the line….well, fun to end on a different note!

    Wowza, Miss Lillian.
    And here I am feeling guilty for publishing a nude figure, when your intimate words are beyond “erotica” πŸ˜‰
    sexy stellar word styling here!

      Well…every once in a while ya just gotta let go! Was a bit worried when I saw what the pen wrote but thought I’d post it and hope for smiles rather than tsk tsks 😳


    • lillian October 26, 2015 / 11:25 am

      Ah….just now seeing your reply. Yes….sometimes the words just pop out of my pen. Must have been drinking especially hot coffee the morning I wrote this one…….or maybe it was after a second glass of wine in the evening? πŸ™‚ So glad you liked it!
