you lay there seductively
absently sliding your hands
along the crescents of flesh
my eyes following the outline

your coquettish movements
direct my focus
begging an imminent need
you’ve got my full attention, dear

presented like an item of food
needing sampled, tasted
fully devoured and consumed
but not too quickly

savored and relished
your form molded
around my tongue
bringing ecstasy to us both

we delight and feast tonight
for our tomorrows might be famine
such is the world
bestowed upon us

  1. What a lot of comments! And you answer each one. Of course, presenting a lover as a delectable course might not quite be approved by some feminist art critiques, but I suppose more diverse-minded feminists would love it.

    1. Yes, I always try to comment unless it gets stuck on WP then it may take me a bit to get back to it. I guess I would turn it around and say it could also apply to a man being consumed. I’m not offended by the notion that a woman is being consumed by shadow. Your piece addresses carnal desire, and what’s wrong with that? πŸ™‚


      1. Hey, me too!! I read it somewhere and it inspired me to learn, then write about it. πŸ™‚ Thanks, happy Friday to you too, Chuck. Visiting with my oldest this weekend and looking forward to it very much! ❀

      1. Yes staying safe and healthy is actually the most important thing for the entire humankind right now. Everybody is okay here, though cases of COVID is still increasing everyday all over India. May we all be able to make through this crisis with strength and resilience.

  2. The ending is perfect. πŸ‘πŸ‘ When I looked at the featured image I thought the title is ‘Combustible’ πŸ˜€ and that too was a fit…😁
    Anyways…it was smooth piece…I’m taking away the expression ‘sliding
    hands along the crescents of your flesh’… beautiful. πŸ€˜πŸ‘πŸ€˜
