Before we fade

Tickling petals gently wet
dewed as butterflies
may flutter, high on sunsets,
we will softly silk-sigh,
skin-to-skin, thigh to hand,
tit to tongue
upwards we can sin
to merge impaled;
we, my love, we
shall burst in bloom,
and later, later fade to black.

  1. This is absolutely brilliant, Bjorn! ❤️ So much to love here especially; “we shall burst in bloom, and later, later fade to black.” Amazing use of colour here and the pacing makes it ever the more enticing. 🙂 Thank you so much for writing to the prompt! ❤️

  2. Wow! This is so vivid. I love how you tie in the different themes entwined with erotic poetry. It’s sensual, it’s physical. It’s beautiful. Fascinating writing once more.

  3. This is your forte’, Bjorn, and evinces itself frequently in your poems. You do it SO well!!

  4. A fabulously sensual and erotic extended metaphor, Björn! I especially love:
    ‘we will softly silk-sigh,
    skin-to-skin, thigh to hand’.

  5. A deliciously erotic poem that’s also filled with the profundity of love. You are truly at home with this form, as is evident here.
