I Love The Way Your Hands Love Me - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

My hands
cradling your head
against my chest

my hands
caressing your breast
all awe & tenderness

my hands
encircling your naked waist

your belly

convulsed with laughter
& desire

my hands
resting on your hips

you stepping out of
your unzipped skirt

a petticoat
like a wave
frothing at your feet

my hands
stroking your thighs gently

opening to
receive me

your discarded panties

landing on the kitten

underneath them

my hands

(you telling me)

“I love the way
your hands

...love me! ”

    Oh I love how your mind poems me. This is sumptuous and the frothing petticoat wave is just toooo beautiful! I love your ability to see something in terms of something else and to make it so startlingly beautiful. I also adore(if I can cross-reference here) the poem for Frieda called(is it a companion piece) YOUR HANDS. I love the hands and hands and...down to the last line and her telling you 'I love the way your hands love me.' This is just so tender! And then of course the discarded panties landing on top of the kitten and running trembling into the next line. This is the way sex should be funny fun lustfull and loving...not necessarily in that order or at least simultaneously and at the same time! Wonderful! I'm sorry now I chickened out of coming to the gathering on Saturday. Have you read what they're saying about you on the Forum. Cheek it out!
    P.S. I always loved your voice and that Irish accent just melts me!

    Tender and seductive - love the imagery you create in these lines in particular:

    'a petticoat
    like a wave
    frothing at your feet' - superb! jz.
