Lyrical love and lust

by cricketjeff on October 25, 2007.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

Love is mainly in the mind
Though bodies help, or so I find
Minds are wooed by honeyed phrase
Poured into them in diverse ways
A rhyme that’s filled with sensual lust
Can break a hole through any crust
When the words have paved the way
Then the bodies start to play
Teasing, writhing, sensing touching
Nothing by now is “that’s too muching”
And all the time there’s softly heard
A murmur of the poets word…
