You Ask Why Sometimes I Say Stop Analysis

Author: poem of Marge Piercy Type: poem Views: 23

You ask why sometimes I say stop

why sometimes I cry no

while I shake with pleasure.

What do I fear, you ask,

why don't I always want to come

and come again to that molten

deep sea center where the nerves

fuse open and the brain

and body shine with a black wordless light

fluorescent and heaving like plankton.

If you turn over the old refuse

of sexual slang, the worn buttons

of language, you find men

talk of spending and women

of dying.

You come in a torrent and ease

into limpness.  Pleasure takes me

farther and farther from the shore

in a series of breakers, each

towering higher before it

crashes and spills flat.

I am open then as a palm held out,

open as a sunflower, without

crust, without shelter, without

skin, hideless and unhidden.

How can I let you ride

so far into me and not fear?

Helpless as a burning city,

how can I ignore that the extremes

of pleasure are fire storms

that leave a vacuum into which

dangerous feelings (tenderness,

affection, l o v e) may rush

like gale force winds.
