Breathless

(3rd Place winner – 2009 Seattle Erotic Art Festival)

pulse–
steady…

upon my bed
her rose in bloom

and what do you do with a
rose?

you…
inhale…

marvel at it’s
many folds…

gently brush your lips against it

teasingly…
teasingly…

pulse–
racing…

upon my bed
her fountain awaits

and how do you drink from
a fountain?

lips placed gently inside
to taste god’s sweet nectar

with
quivering tongue

slowly…
slowly…

pulse–
frantic…

upon my bed
her river overflows

and how do you ride
a river?

enter ever so gently…
stroke where the currents
flow…

deeper…
deeper…

pulse–
explodes…

  1. Lovely and evocative, Jacque. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Totally beautiful 🙂

  3. […] can read the rest of the poem here, and I hope you will. […]

  4. I’ve posted a short extract from this on my blog, in this post, inviting people to come here to read it all—I hope that’s OK. It deserves to be read!

    • Of Course, Tim! Thank you for posting, I’m very flattered.

      • Thanks! It was quite hard choosing the right amount to post—I wanted what I posted to make sense on its own, but make people want to come here to see the rest. I hope it has that effect!

        I don’t like using other people’s material without permission, even short quotes, so I wanted to check with you.

  5. This is stunning! I don’t generally like erotic poetry (probably because most of it is so poorly done) but this poem takes my breath away. The tone and the way the words have so many meanings… I’m reminded of Saul Williams. Beautiful.

  6. i can almost hear the sighs after…two thumbs up, Jacque.

  7. I’m pretty sure I commented on this at your other blog, but I’d do it here too. This is so lovely – I love this line – “and how do you ride a river?”

  8. I keep returning to this poem. The questions you posed, “how do you drink from a fountain” and “how do you ride a river,” occupy my free thoughts and beg to be answered.

  9. YES! YES! YESSSSSS!
    thank U;-)
