Carnal Cravings

Come closer darling
let me tickle you
in carnal cravings,
let’s boil in bliss of burning blood,
let’s be closer, boiling,
captured skin on skin
let’s fall
into the sweetness of our sin;

and later, later,
sated we will wander
flesh to flesh
into wistful features
of a delicious dream
more resembling dawn
than dusk.

  1. This is incredibly sensuous, Bjorn! I love the image of “a delicious dream more resembling dawn than dusk.” Thank you so much for writing to the prompt! 💝💝

  2. The alliteration in this poem gives it such a naughty touch, Björn, with emphasis on the voiceless velar plosive ‘k’ and the labial ‘b’, lots of mouth action! I like the shift from the first to the second stanza, which lightens the mood with softer consonants.
