Masochistic Wishes - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There is a need for some,
To get their pleasure felt and delivered...
Whipped and beatened.
And treated sadistically.
By those wanting nothing more,
Than to give those requesting...
For them what is adored.

Punishment?
No.
Not when it is condoned like this.

It's that masochistic thing!
When one has a list of preferred afflictions.
Effective grief received and delivered...
Is a comfort to many fitting this category.

With a desire to feel pain,
One misses and begs to get.
Masochistic wishes as if a Christmas gift.

Wanting every bit of this sadisticness.
One can not resist.
Masochistic wishes promised and a bliss this is.

There is a need for some,
To get their pleasure felt and delivered...
Whipped and beatened.
And treated sadistically.

Masochistic wishes,
One misses and begs to get.
Punishment?
No.
Not when it is condoned like this.

Whipped and beatened into bliss like this.
Masochistic wishes,
One misses and begs to get.
