Nothing Sweet

source


Sweet nothings whispered in my ear
Are nothing more than air
And declarations of devotion
Feel just like a prayer

Words
Won’t get me there
Don’t
Get on your knees for me

Your touch can tease, can please, so please
Give me a love that’s bold
And  take me, break me, make me love
With passion uncontrolled.

Couldn't tear my eyes away from the image ... THEN I read your poem and forgot the image. Now, I'm left with the image of your words!

Oh my god! That was hot! That was exactly what any woman would want! I really believe that mushy romance is "nothing". It's the uncontrolled passion. :) Absolutely brilliant! I Love it!!!

Passion in poetry... oh, so effectively.
