Marriage Ceremony - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

“Do you...
(Donall Donall)

take this woman’s body
to have & to hold

to totally transform
by the bliss

of loving her? ”

“I do...I do! ”

“Do you...
(Janice A. Windle)
take this man

to tease & to tempt
to tantalise beyond

all human endurance

so that he almost
expires from the ecstasy

of your loving arms? ”

“I do...I do too! ”

“You may now
make love.”

    Nice erotic unusual ceremony. I like it, a little bit old fashioned - you can make love only after the ceremony, of course, no way :) . I like the mix of virginity and lust. Well penned...and conratulations and cheers of course! (Report)Reply

    You've taken more than my body, Donall. And given me more than yours, too. We're talking serious love here. x (Report)Reply
