The Journey

Have you ever taken a trip and enjoyed the journey as much as the actual destination?   You notice all the sights and sounds; you are fully alive as your senses are awakened to everything, you are ALIVE in the moment?  Well take this journey with me …..

The Journey

want to kiss my way from

toes to fingertips

making the trip

s              l               o             w            l               y

taking in all the sights along the way

noticing the little scar on your knee

from the day you fell out of the breadfruit tree

and tracing the rough edges of the place

where mosquito bit –  leaving a trace

of her love bite


and I do the same,

soothing with a kiss.


silky thigh makes me sigh with

softness of tender skin


my tongue has thoughts of plundering…


I pull it back into line

and continue my journey.


tracing each curving hip

with heated breath from questing lip

I pass over the rolling hills of your behind

remembering the first time

I saw your birthmark.


I have no haste while

arms encircle willing waist

not wanting to miss anything,

I stop to take in the view

how breath taking!




are exquisite, so divine

I start again the meandering climb

carefully scaling sloping spine


with kisses.


Tongue plays connect the dots

drawing lines between each  freckle


but not to draw a picture –


I’m seeking all your pleasure spots.

Gently parting flowing locks

I make my mark on nape of neck,

teeth carving,  “I love you,” into tender bark.


Kissing slowly down shoulder blade

noting carefully the goosebumps made

as trailing fingers trace your back

lips close to journey’s end.


I suck each finger – turn over


for the trip back








to your downy

  3. You write your sensuous poetry with a light touch (pun intended) which takes away the “Eww-factor” many attempts at erotic writing have for me. This was beautifully described.

  13. Steamy! Some great imagery throughout. I like the details of the birthmark and freckles, kind of grounds the feelings of ecstasy a bit, so to speak.

  17. You must be a wow with the ladies, if you treat them like this! 🙂


    Posted by Trellissimo | February 1, 2012, 6:59 PM
    • Alas, yon ladies seem unaffected by my affections… would love to try to express my emotions, but they seem afraid of such love….

      Seriously, this is how I’d like to treat someone 🙂 But somehow, it’s not happened yet!

  20. So tender. This was my favorite line, “teeth carving, “I love you,” into tender bark.”.

  21. This is a gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous devotion. Loved the way you wrote ‘slowly’ spaced out – and the scar on the knee, rhyming with the tree. ‘Wandering, my tongue has thoughts of plundering’ – EXCELLENT. Drawing lines between each freckle. Oh man, this poem is so sensual. It’s beautiful, I absolutely love it.
