Seductive Poetry


When all the writings done, what has been said?
I've used my verse to seduce a heart; at least
I want you. Can I rhyme you into bed?

(I'll tell him by his kisses my love is fed,
And get him drunk on words.) Who needs a feast?
When all the writings done, what has been said?

Cino knew, 'Lips, words, ' and they might be led.
'I love you' works on women, subtly we're told:
I want you. Can I rhyme you into bed?

With all the times I've lost a friend instead
Of gaining a lover, I should learn to be less bold.
When all the writings done what has been said?

I'll leave a copy loosely around to be read.
He'll think I'm shy, so this I must withhold.
I want you, can I rhyme you into bed?

Most men get frightened when feelings so strong are said.
Perhaps this time I'll let it slowly unfold.
When all the writings done, what has been said?
I want you. Can I rhyme you into bed?

    What a delightful and very well written poem this is, Lillian! You have tackled a sensitive subject head on and done a wonderful job with this charming and entertaining poem! You are quite right that many men recoil at loving words expressed in poetry, or even orally in rhyme. Kind of makes them nervous! But one day, there will be one with a sensitive heart and you will find that lover/friend your heart has sought. Thank you for this exceptional and very appealing poem. Carl. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
