Stroking and exciting
Your silken touch
causing skin to react
and willingly attract
In semi darkness
Writhing as one
in nostalgic fantasy
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.
Yes how right you are Rob 🙂💕👍
Thank you my friend! 🙂💕
You’re welcome Christine
I like the parallel of contentment and resentment at the end.
Thanks Frank …i t came together right there 🙂
You had me at writhing, such gravitas writhing, loved the heat.
🙂 Thanks Paul.
Gotta agree: Those last 3 lines are the cold shower. And they WHAM-BAM end the piece so perfectly! Salute!
Thans Ron! 🙂 Life can be just like that 😏
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.
Thanks so much Lillian 🙂 Temperature seems cover so many things 🤣
