Raw Love

Updated on August 14, 2013
Source

I taste her

Saltiness on my lips

On my tongue

I am overwhelmed

By her scent

Woman’s aroma

Feminine musk

Deep perfume

My blood pounds

Through my body

Like warm whiskey

Flowing through my veins

Humming in my eardrums

My fingertips hoover

Over her skin

Gently

Softly

A Man’s struggle

Fighting urgency

To grasp

To thrust

But control’s

Tenderly

Lightly

Educing a tremble

Animal instinct

Human desire

I witness the eclipse

Within her eyes

From guarded restraint

To unbearable want

Exquisitely undress her

Silk sliding

Over goose bumps

I fight the impatience

But it is difficult

Hard

So very hard

We love

Tender, rough

Fast, slow

Scream, laugh

Claw, caress

And the war is over

We lick our wounds

      NOW I can fine comment on this, like I tried to do earlier when comments were down. Your sense of self is most apparent in this piece, along with your honesty and sense of time. This was beautifully done.

      Hello Mister Erotica - I just had a cigarette and I don't even smoke.

      Well I am sure if enough ladies in Hubtown see and read these words they won't have to be faking anything - anymore , lol.
