Erotic Verse: Skinny Dipping
A sudden splash: my sly eyes lowered still
Above the swaggering man, his thighs caressed
By the dark waves, my hands caught in his thrill,
He holds me helpless crest upon crest.
How can those terrified shy fingers roam
The wearied glory from my loosening thighs?
And how can body, laid in that white foam
But feel the strange heart beating where it lies?
A shudder in the loins engenders yet
The broken lust, the burning heart and flower
And past loves dead.
Being so swept up,
So mastered by the brute waves of the sea,
Did I put on his baggage with his power
Before the indifferent dick could let me be?
