Three Lovers

You, the beautiful myth, distant and shimmering,
you join me as his constant lover, see me curve into
and against him, my calves meeting at the small
of his back, my fingers contrasting brown
against his pale skin.

You and I, a tangle of sheets and jealousy
and painful desire for the same man. Yet, here,
with only your fantasy to soothe me,
I ask if my tongue could desire a nipple
other than yours, would it stand the salt
of any other skin?

There is a question in the imprint my lips left
just above the soft line where your hair kisses
his smooth belly when you glide up and over him.
Do you know that when his strong fingers slide
into me, it is your moist warmth he feels, your swollen
mouth that opens on the deep moan?

As he moves further into me, he comes infinitely closer
to your glorious depth. And as my dark lips take his length,
it is only your taste I swallow. Your body is a luscious
and lasting dream as my thick thighs straddle him,
my breasts full and soft casting shadows against the sheets
and his eyes squeezed shut.

Each time I arch, hair like water falling away
from my face, eyes black, mouth dry and gasping,
I conjure your clasping hands and heaving breasts
as I rise and rise and rise until
it is your name we scream.

  • Rachel @ MWF Seeking BFF

    Wowzer. One of the awesomest things about Five for Ten has been reading such beautiful poetry. I'm totally in awe.... both of the beautful writing and of the courage (another theme altogether!) it must have taken to post this....

  • XmasDolly

    Holy Crap! That's like walking in in the middle of a movie, and not knowing what the hell is going on! I mean dam girl! Should I blush & close my eyes? Did I walk in on something? I mean even my husband has never been that romantic... unless he was drunk... hehehehehe~ Whew! Oh by the way I almost forgot why I stopped by thanks for stopping by me. lol

    I'm staring at a blank screen, should have already written my own lust post, but I am late. I have little time left. I stare at the blank screen and I think...KELLY! I HAVE to read Kelly's post. And here I am. And I'm blown away. My desire revived, even though it's not even 7 am.

    You have rocked LUST like it should be rocked, Kelly. Absolutely fantastic.

  • TKW

    DUDE!!!! This is incendiary! Holy crap, I need to take a cold shower. Hoo-boy, you nailed this!

  • rebecca

    I have read this four times. I see different things every time. "He" her fantasy. "He" his fantasy. "He" a reality. I am dizzy from all the sweat and nipples.

    Glad you are writing. Especially with heat.

  • Unknown

    This makes me want to leave work and run home into the arms of the person who makes me scream like that. WOW. This is LUST defined.
