Wintry Night: A Poem

Wintry Night

In the midst of a wintry night, a love unfurrowed to take flight.

A glance shot beside the fire is all it took to ignite this desire.

The desire, bright and hot, as a flare led to this fervor we share.

For a moment this whole world revolves around this boy and girl.

 

 

From your attention my heart does sing so sure of this ardent thing

Splashing into amour like the waves dance upon the golden shore

Like the butterfly in my stomach flaps its wings, oh what elation this brings.

From the ceiling to the floor I say to you “I want more.”

For you my love I so adore.

 

 

Entranced by the gentle sway of your breast as I gaze at the rising of your chest.

They seem to beg to be free but not here where everyone can see

To my chamber we decide and I’ll take you to paradise

You trot ahead with glee as I plot out your wildest fantasy

My beds the ocean moving as a notion of our endless motion.

 

 

In this moment of sensuous play an eternity I’d like to stay

Of your innocence so sweet etched is the memory of your heat

The love you give makes me high that my breath escapes in a sigh.

The smoothness of your skin has me living in sin

And your hair so soft and fair falls over me without a care

The act, never wrong with a passion so complete and strong.

 

 

Absorbed in enthusiasm you give a quick spasm

Oh I’ve found the magic spot and I give it all I’ve got

Your eyes to mine with a stare hold on babe we’re almost there

Pressure builds to astound, ecstasy my love, we have found

We fall back into the bed in my arms upon my chest you lay your head

Silence settles o'er the night, like this we stay until the morning light.

Great stuff, Wesley! This was my favorite line:

The smoothness of your skin has me living in sin

Great alliteration. Thumbs up!

Thanks for stopping by Ralwus, I am glad that you like the poem, thought I'd try something a little lighter than my usual. Had to soften it quite a bit though.

you are a lovely person...... really you are, what a nice poem, for your wife, has she read it or do i not even go there. I am so proud of your poetry, i could not write anything like that, i really could not

wesleycox 6 years ago from Back in Texas, at least until August 2012 Author

She actually did just read it and she loved it. Thank you for reading my poems PL as I appreciate all the positive feedback you've given me. What was your favorite line?


poetlorraine 6 years ago

i like the first line of the third verse, and all that verse, probably because it is so typical of a man's re action to a womans body..... she would like that you were deriving much pleasure from her. I am glad she read it, and i hope she keeps on reading your work, i have told you before you are special, and you will keep improving, well done........


Justine76 6 years ago

oh, wow. There are really men who care about the pleasure of ohters? And did I read that right, its for your wife?

How lovely!!!! Lucky girl...

my favourite line was..."You trot ahead with glee as I plot out your wildest fantasy"

that you would be thinking of her is what casues you so much joy...fantastic!!

Thanks again, I enjoyed writing that one very much as well. Honestly, I'm trying to mimic Poe's musicality of his poems. Getting closer I think, plus ralwus has it down pat I think.

Justine: I thank you very much for this lovely comment, besides the focus of this act should be on the other person. Yes indeed you read right, it is for my wife as I wrote it for her and while thinking of her. And I am the lucky one. Thank you for reading, commenting, and enjoying this poem.

Very well done...again. Innocent (and not so) and passionate - you've captured the way true lovers should feel.

Azur thank you for the nice comments and I'm glad that you felt it was innocent and passionate as that was what I was going for.

Great One...Wesleycox! It takes the reader into this very intimate moment with astonishing-calm and cool-deliberate detail. Reads very well...and I see your work has gathered many fine Hubbers to comment approvingly. Add me to the list of folks who are impressed with your Poetry. This was some remarkable Poetry!

MPM: You have effectively humbled me by those kind words of praise. I only hope that I can continue to live up to expectations and continue to improve my poetry. There are still many more styles I've yet to try and look forward to attempting them. Again thank you for you kind words of approval.

Hi Wesley,

I loved your poem, it was truly beautiful the way you described just what a loving relationship you have with your wife. I could feel your love for her coming through in many ways. Even though you did describe very grafically some of the details, you did manage to do it quite tasefully and that is why it was so special to me and I felt your love for her in it so strongly Wesley. I have been dabbling in a bit of poetry myself, but still have a long way to go. You are very good and I am going to read some more, of which I will like again of this I am sure. Thank you and have a lovely Christmas BB
