A Poet For A Lover (Adult) - Poem by C.J. Heck

Give me a poet for a lover
whose words stroke me like velvet hands.
Word-tender caresses more reaching
than the caress of a mere mortal man.

A poet's light touch is so gentle.
Word-fingers probe deep every time,
arousing me, haunting me, wetting me,
seducing me, body and mind.

Oh Lord,
give me a poet for a lover.
Lust and fire burn in his heart.
A silver-tongued devil whose words make me ache
to be on my knees in the dark.

Word-foreplay making me want him,
only mind-loved, I want to be free
to feel just one time, my poet inside,
where only mind-lust up to now has loved me.

    Oh Lord how beautiful it would be
    if I too had a lover writing poetry
    as do thee
    what strokes he would share
    just anyone may compare
    such lovers are rare

    Intense! Sensual. And still a valid prayer. Almost descriptive of poetry itself. Cares are thrown away for pure desire. It's not even carnal, even though you're on your knees and vulnerable, it's a mind-affair. Superb imagery and metaphor. As words come off your tongue, so it desires the touch of a word-man.

    Thank you for your kind words, Daniel.

  • Patricia Grantham (9/25/2013 8:05:00 PM)

    A very provocative write C.J. and so erotic in contents but very well
    crafted. Poets do have that extra flavor of words that pours into the
    heart and excites the senses. Very good!

    Beautiful write-so full of passion and imagination. Aye, words can caress and imagery arouse the mind, the soul, the body. The act of love is perhaps the most poetic moment, the most intense, significant, and transcendent. In it, we jump the hours that are never ours and reach into the divine. This poem expresses all this so well. Inspiring, really! Great write! Thanks for sharing! (Report) Reply

    Poets are inherently dangerous...perhaps! Please read 'An Old Codger....Rose...And Made His Way.' (Report) Reply

    'Whose words stroke me like velvet hands-' Woah! ! What a feeling of being caressed by words. How many times have I read someting that left my skin tingling because I felt as tho' I had been 'Stroked! '
    I loved this poem, felt the desire for another, wanted to be loved like this. Linda

    WOW, this is very very original! I have never read a poem like this!
    Beautifully written, shocking at places, just the combination of the words...
    God, I am very very happy to have read this!
    You are so talented!

    Lovely structure and theme. I don't know if I want someone who shares my passion, but heck! (no pun intended) we are all different.
