Quick Fix

Quick Fix

Stroking and exciting
Your silken touch
causing skin to react
Bodies responding
Adoration mutual
and willingly attract  
In semi darkness
Writhing as one
in nostalgic fantasy
Temperatures rising
Perspiration dripping
Heights of ecstasy
When completely spent
overjoyed in euphoria
Comes sleepy contentment
Adoration is mutual
until the return
of perpetual resentment

    This is excellent Christine. Perhaps the reason young love is so beautiful rests with the fact that not enough time has elapsed to build that resentment.

    I like the parallel of contentment and resentment at the end.

    Gotta agree: Those last 3 lines are the cold shower. And they WHAM-BAM end the piece so perfectly! Salute!

    Oh my…..I was riding with you in the poem …. thinking Whew! I will need a cold shower at the end of this…..and then your words provided it! “Perpetual resentment” like a cold washcloth slapped on the face at the end of this passionate scene.
    Well done!
