    Willing but unable

    You have no idea,
    no idea how bad I wanna . . .
    I wanna,
    I wanna taste you,
    no. not that cliche erotic poetry type taste,
    I’m talking tasting so deeply that
    just watching my lips move,
    sends aftershocks through your body days after our encounter,
    but I’m unable.

    I wanna indulge in the type of foreplay
    reserved for longtime lovers searching for new possibilities.
    That upper echelon loving,
    you know . . .
    when you know every spot, every crevice,
    the exact amount of pressure, the perfect speed,
    that special angle,
    but again I’m unable.

    I wanna allow my animal instinct to consume me
    in the thralls of passion,
    pounding your flesh with the primitive precision
    of reckless abandon,
    feeding my ego with the sounds of
    aggression impassioned
    and the sweetest agony,
    but I am unable.

    I wanna see the facial transitions of love making,
    that preemptive uncertainty with loaded expectations,
    the pleasant surprise of package approval,
    that first lick of the lips and eye roll,
    the “yes, daddy that’s the spot” look,
    that over-the-shoulder look of complete surrender,
    the face seizure that can only be caused by orgasm,
    and finally the tranquil beauty of satisfaction.
    I am more than willing,
    but as I said before . . .
    I’m disabled,
    and unable to move from the neck down,
    but the saddest part of it all
    is that . . .
    I know you never imagine me the way I imagine you.

    Wow, you just penned some deep stuff you wanna do,
    all the right things to draw me ...to you.
    Yet, all in the same breathe, you state you're not able?
    and...
    If dealing with me is such of a lable
    I still love the 'offer, you placed on the table.​

    I definitely did not expect that ending, wow, it really stunned me. Great writing can make a person speechless like that, masterfully posed. Welcome back.

    You were able to take my mind
    on a trip that I quite enjoyed. Sometimes
    its not all about the physical. Awesome Piece!!!!
    Poetic Fiyah I say...


    Much Luv & Peace

    Greetings poet, this piece left me in a state of wow. What's truly amazing though, is the way that people take things for granted. I have often wanted to make love with someone as if that moment would be the last time I ever would get a chance to. I can relate to you poet, this was awesome.
