I just had a flash of inspiration and wrote this. I stole the first line off of my friend’s Black Berry Messenger status, and wrote this poem on a whim. It reminded a friend of mine about our festival season in my country of Barbados (Crop Over) – where a lot of people get into one night stands under the influence of the drinking and the party atmosphere – and where a lot of Crop Over babies are born 9 months later!
It came out so well that my best friend is wanting to write an erotic story around this piece. Enjoy!
One Night Stand
Grab someone sexy and tell them ‘Hey’
Then steal a dance under the stars
Whisk their heart away
With a kiss,
Look them in the eyes
Let their heart fall into
your hands with your gaze
And watch it melt as you set it ablaze
With your passion…
Lips lock with the action
Of frenzied lovers too long kept apart
Drawing together with a force
Stronger than magnetism, we start
To exchange emotions
With our motions
Moaning and moving
As we make love in the dark.
And then morning comes.
The empty bed mocks mercilessly….
