Lust - Poem by Aparna Chatterjee

Lust is what I speak tonight,
Lust is what I see tonight,
Lust is what I feel tonight,
And I Lust You.

Show me your Body
inside out…
no clothes on,
no holds barred…
bit by bit,
part by part,
give me your smells,
and your sweat…
give me what all you have
every naked bit of yours,
I want to see All of yours.

feel my hands
feel my legs
feel my torso
my body begs…

Come on me
and make me wet
juices flowing…
feel the heat…
together, we’ll
make ‘us’ meet.

If Lust be sin,
So be it…
For I am a Woman,
And you a Man.
How can I love you
and not lust you?

For Me,
Love and Lust,
go hand in hand…
for I am a Woman
and you are my Man.

    Wow...A beautiful poem with all raw emotions embedded.
    Show me your Body
    inside out…
    no clothes on,
    no holds barred…
    bit by bit,
    part by part,
    give me your smells,
    and your sweat…
    give me what all you have
    every naked bit of yours,
    I want to see All of yours.

    I love your frank expression about the feelings of a woman in this stanza.

    If Lust be sin,
    So be it…
    For I am a Woman,
    And you a Man.
    How can I love you
    and not lust you?

    The best lines are

    For Me,
    Love and Lust,
    go hand in hand…
    for I am a Woman
    and you are my Man.

    You have portrayed man and woman as true as the nature has created them. The elements of love and lust provide the necessary fire and purpose to to every human life. Great poetry. (Report) Reply

    Yeah well it all starts from being attracted to what we see. Soul-mate? Nah we are no witches to see souls.: D (Report) Reply

    Very bold attempt and reminds me of Kamala Das. I wish our poetesses to be as free like their male counterparts to express the desires and passions. Keep focussing on this aspect in future works also. (Report) Reply

    Great! It says all things you think in that moment of passion that some are too ashamed to say out loud (Report) Reply

    Finally. *A man hears what he wants to hear and he disregards the rest*. In this case, you actually said what I wanted to hear. (Report) Reply
