Poetry Corner: Pleasure Moment

I write a lot, but sometime even I get a little lost. Sometime I hardly write a word, and yet I can still write one helluva poem, be it sonnets, villanelle, or blitz poem. I am a F***kin' Awesome Writer. In preparation for OctPoWriMo starting October 1st I wanted to share a poem a write.

My friend Joy found this local poetry contest of female sexuality, gender expression, gender identity, and the like. She sent it to me. I vowed to submit something, and so I wrote. I haven't submitting anything yet, but I have until November. In the mean time I wanted to share one of my attempts to write about female sexuality. It is not a topic I often tackle, but I felt compelled to try, also, I am trying to revised one or more of this poem for inclusion in this contest.

I hope you enjoy it, Dear Readers.

There will be a lot more poetry in the coming months, and even regular blog posts again. I have had a busy and intense year, starting to wind down into a bit of normalcy again. Not that I always want normalcy, but I like some consistency at least.

With that, I give you...

 Pleasure Moment

I am my sex,
female, if you will, 
alive with sensual desires--
breathing down my neck.

goose pimpled flesh.
The moment's gone, you see,
unless the fire is stoked,
and fed by tinder

Pulses race--
I know I am alive,

Are you?

Give me a moment
and I will come when called;
and your fannng my desires,
making the woman in me 
stand out.

I am not ashamed.

This is a pleasure moment, 
silently sought
hard pressed to win.

My desires are real,
as am I. See me!

I am touch, to yours,
giving in, to yours--
drink me in
and in a moment,
know that I am
heat and desire,
pleasure and pain,
housed all in one.

Will you give in too?

And the moment need not pass again.

  1. Interesting exploration of the emotions behind our sensuality, an invitation to appreciate and celebrate what is. My favorite line: "Give me a moment," for isn't that what we all wish?
