Can You Show Me How To Make Love? (Poetry)

Updated on July 31, 2012

You asked me

To make love to you

And I must admit

I’m not sure how.

I heard it all starts

With a kiss

And a feeling of…….


But a fool I am,

In this art

Selfish in my ways

Can you show me

The way

Making love

Is played?

I really want

To know

What it feels like

To make love

To someone

All day

All night.

Two hearts


As one


Like the sun


Can you show me how

To make love?

You asked me

To make love to you

And I must admit

I feel kind of silly

Telling you

I don't know how

I mean....


I've never

Done it


Making love

Was always

Something more.

Beyond my abilities

My frivolous


I am a fool

When it comes

To this

Can you show me how

To make

      This is beautiful combination curiosity and sensuality. I know I'm a little late but nice poem.

      Very nice! I can see this from two different angles: from sincere innocence and honesty, and from a teasing, sensual way.

      I am glad someone finally see's there is a difference between the two. Making love is one the fundamental differences between humans and everything else. There is a connection that is not easily made, but when it happens, in the dark, with the heavy breathing, and the feeling of your chest pumping do hard it reminds you of a train you can't help but know that is far beyond just sex. There is a literal force holding you two together, thank you.

      Not innocent, Any fool can figure out how to have sex, but to make love is not something everyone gets to experience.

      Beautiful poem, but is he really such an innocent? Or is it a clever way to get the woman to do all the work. :) Either way, beautiful sensuous and very enticing.

      Okay. I was curious because I used to do a radio show on Blog Talk Radio, and I was wondering if you were a fellow host.
