The Pain I Relish

Updated on August 31, 2013
Source


At the front door

on my way to work

she kissed me…roughly

toothpaste and cigarettes

I taste and spit dryly

she slaps me…hard

across my bristled cheek

I step in close…reach behind

and take her hair in my fist

a tight ball of tresses

lean in for another

but move too slowly

she bites my lip…roughly

and I crush her mouth with mine

aching bruised lip tender

from yesterday’s goodbye

toothpaste, cigarette, and blood.

I love you, she says

followed by the foulest of language

and I think I snarled

didn’t intend to

but who can control the animal?

Her hand has snuck in

and I feel her nails

through my jeans

grasping me…hurting

the pain I relish.

Don’t be late, she demands

turns and walks away

and with a flip

of a shoulder strap

let’s her gown fall to the floor

before she rounds the corner

reminding me…

what is for dinner

      Yes indeed the art of seduction and I admire every woman who has it, a man needs to feel the power of a woman, not only her beautiful scent. I love playing and remember those days when lust, looks, feelings, both emotional and physical played a big part in my life. I'm glad I had a taste of the sweetest nectar that a goddess has to offer. Being a little rough and role playing can sure spice up a man's/woman's day and yearning for more. So I'd say sir, you have one hell of a HOT meal waiting for you when you get home, Bravo well penned, scintillating, I could feel the HEAT between both your loins. LOL

      Thank you, Vincent. There are those aches that we do not rue. Some battle scars come, not in the heat of battle, but in the heat of passion.

      What a way to start the day. I wonder how long it took an 8 hour work day to creep by? And how much work got done thinking about the delicious dinner waiting for you at home? I think I'd have to call in sick and have an early dinner!

      Wow, that is a very hot poem! It would be hard to concentrate on anything while anticipating "dinner".

      Wayne,

      Wow! I have been away for too long. Another gripping (sorry could not help it) and raw example of excellent poetry. You continue to just "spit" one right out after another. Voted Up. Shared.

      Hope you and yours are well,

      Kim
