Passion

Passion

In the glorious, burning
splendor of deep lust
are passion-filled nights
Overpowering and exciting
where all reason is lost
in wondrous heights
 
Touching and stroking
Delighting in exploring
mind-blowing ecstasy
Sweating and gasping
Caution to the winds
Screaming out helplessly
 
The slow, delicious descent
from the euphoric state
is a journey of gratification
Until lain crumpled and spent
in the forgotten ashes of
intimacy and adulteration

Grace at D'Verse Poets has a guest
host tonight Sanaa Rizvi and she has
prompted us with Erotica.
I have reworked an old poem from 2019 and
I stayed with the rhyming format

    Someone lower the AC here, stat! Sanaa is right, it really just got hot here. Whew!

    Beautifully written with so much fervor. You describe the journey into intimacy delicately, and it’s just stunning. Incredible work, as always. This one is mind-blowing with the descriptions and figurative language.

      You’re most kind. Thank you Ingrid. This wasn’t my usual genre, so it’s nice to be pushed a little ☺️

    You definitely turned up the temperature with this poem, Christine! I think it’s all those active verbs – and the passion!

        Oh, Please Christine – find out what it was that “came over you” and let it happen again so we will have – MORE – to read (and maybe listen too?)

      Thanks Rob! If I’d gone for 5 stars it would have been censored! Lol 🤣

  12. September 2, 2020 at 3:10 pm

    Wow! Chistine!! This left me speechless, breathless and melted!! I’m racing to get ice water to splash on my face on my journey to the A/C controls!!! My, oh My!!! Lucky, this didn’t vaporize me! I think Rob should check his hot meter?? I’m sure you broke it when it went past 10!! Love it, love it!! So sensuous and erotic (Mission Accomplished)!

    Loved the thoughts in these lines ” Where all reason is lost . . . . Caution to the winds, Screaming out helplessly” The last stanza was amazing too!! Bellissimo, My Dear, Bellissimo!!! There is only one thing you have left to do to make this “Beyond Perfect”, Christine! You need to recite this on an audio and add it so that all your followers can enjoy it with eyes closed and visualize the masterpiece you have made for us!! Please, Please – don’t make me beg more than this!!!
    Your followers voted unanimously to have you recite it!! One of your very best!! Mmmm!!!
    xoxo – 😍💖💕😘😁🌹🌹

      Dear Chuck, you are too kind. I’m happy you didn’t vaporize! ☺️💕 I don’t think I could recite it though 😳😳😳🤣

      • September 3, 2020 at 12:51 pm

        I’m glad I didn’t vaporize too, but I think it was a close call! Yeah, you would have lost a follower! Ha! 😢😢
        I do believe you broke poor Rob’s hot meter though! LOL! 😍
        Do you mean you are not sure you can because of your plan on WP or you “feel” unable to do it? You are the author. You gave birth to the words. Should you present it in the best possible way to the World – using your own voice???
        Did you forget about your followers – unanimous vote to have you recite it??? LOL!
        xoxo
        😁💕🌹😍

        I’m considering it. Maybe another poem? 🙂☺️🤭

      • September 4, 2020 at 2:31 pm

        Well???? Just as long as you come back to record it later!!!
        xoxo
