X-Rated

Breaths combined, eyes locked, allured,

Inches far apart,

Rising tide of wanting,

Neither one may start.

 

Passion builds with waiting

And heated hands do twitch

Reach out to touch, envelop,

Take fever to its pitch.

 

The look now broken by a thought,

A glance away to press the urge.

Look once more into the soul,

Feel the aching surge.

 

Now lean to kiss, the slightest touch,

With promises of more.

A tantalising taste of honey,

Shivers to the core.

 

And all at once, the dam has burst,

And hunger’s needs are met,

Falling to the rising tide

And drenched in wettest sweat.

 

Assuaged, the delight, the fascination

Ought to be abated,

But longing looks and lustful thoughts know much more

Will come. But that has been X-rated.

  1. You have beautifully described my love and my want for chocolate followed by the subsequent hyperglycaemic episode, tantalising taste of honey, the hunger needs are met, drenched in wettest sweat, But longing looks and lustful thoughts know more. X rated alright, especially the words out the mouth of my diabetic nurse if she finds out 🙂

      1. All Love is risky, but I have lost 6 stone which has brought my blood sugars to perfect. I have been told by the diabetic that with my sugar levels are so good I can afford to treat myself, 🙂 Its all thanks to the venom of a lizard that was made into the injection I take twice a day called Byetta. I lost 11 inches off my waist and never get blood results over 8, more 6 and below. Before I lost the weight I was struggling with breathing, took spray for angina every day. it was hard work but its been well worth it. 🙂

    1. Well, it’s now beginning to look that way! I’m up for lovely chocolate too but, obviously, not as much as everyone else. No wonder I’ve got 7 kids! Maybe if I’d eaten more chocolate, hmmmm, there’s a lesson in there somewhere. But, I don’t think I want to learn it. 😉 x

  2. I’ve made the following slight changes that I might change back if I reread them, but I really liked this. It is cleanly wrought and lovely.

      1. I really mean it. It felt flawless and important. I am contemplating an issue a teacher raised when one of her students said that he could learn better if she where naked. As a feminist, the teacher was livid. I want to tell her that the act of becoming angry at the student is in and of itself as violent as the student’s demeaning comment. Despite that the student’s comment was juvenile, I feel that equality has to be reached when it comes to relationships and the student was just acting out his fantasies probably knowing full-well that the chance that he would win his teacher’s heart were nil. And thus the word flirtation having to do with mere play and no intention, per se reveals that there didn’t seem to be much investment on the student’s part. Silence would have indicated a more serious investment, where at least for me, infatuation keeps me too nervous to say/do anything.

        Anyway, I love when that which is X-rated is made less serious than it seems to be in general. Love your work for the lightness of it’s being and the truth it imposed.

      2. My goodness. I am flattered. Or should that be complimented? Either way, thank you muchly! I tend to take things too seriously, so I always welcome when my flighty side deigns to show. Thanks again for your comments. x
