The duvet washes up over our soft naked skin.
Rounded with rises and mounds,
Which swell and dance with the movement of our bodies.
We reflect and let our minds be silent
And we bath in the sun of each others smile
Radiating from our sun-kissed souls
Stretching my legs and toes over what seems like miles,
Of smooth cotton sheets of white sand
Then curl back up in him, like a crab in a shell.
We could have laid there for eternity, and maybe we did.
But just as a return from a holiday,
It would’ve been wrong to stay any longer.
After all, every man is an island
But we often find ourselves stranded there
Lost in paradise
| I loved the ending otherwise it was alright but it was the end that hooked me, good writing, good writing..keep it up...|

Yes, it's erotic - but always in a sensual, romantic way - never crude or obvious. Combined with an uplifting ending, this makes for a really satisfieying read - keep up the great writes.||| Posted on 2005-07-11 00:00:00 | by Von Django | [ Reply to This ] || I think you capture what love making should be, senseual,passionate,erotic,honest and peacefu. not some pornstar wanna be film festival.|

|| Posted on 2005-07-11 00:00:00 | by edthepoet | [ Reply to This ] || This was really well written! Started out all hot and steamy, thought we were going somewhere else with this one, but then very nicely expressed feelings ensued! I really like the comparison of smooth cotton sheets and white sand! Yeah, paints a nice picture in my head of spending some mmmm time with someone special! Good poem! Take care!||| Posted on 2005-07-07 00:00:00 | by lmz | [ Reply to This ] || MMMmmm me likey. Innocent and pure love, I was wondering if you'd drift into erotica as it started, but you kept it above the waist and let the love shine through.|
A great start, great middle and a great finish! Great!
Yeah, there's been lots of poems like this, but I can't think of one that was worded better!

Other than that, what we have here is a fantasy life that has been described over and over again. You have the ability in you to dig deeper. The last lines show it... Go deeper...Intrigue the reader...Make the reader read it again...|
|| Posted on 2005-07-06 00:00:00 | by xtremegentleman | [ Reply to This ] || I didn't find anything in this write that made it unique or that allowed it to stand out against all the others like it...it was a good piece though... Your last stanza was absolutely beautiful...definitely something that gets one muse going...||| Posted on 2005-07-06 00:00:00 | by Brownsdelight | [ Reply to This ] || Wow, this was so profound, and I loved how you chose to word it, and compare it to a time, or a holiday off at the beach. The words painted a picture on my mind, and you should be very proud because that's not something a lot of poets can pull off. The final stanza was so sad, on how you wanted to stay there forever, but you knew that you couldn't. I think it was very nocely written, and I love the words you chose to construct the image, and "the smooth cotton sheets of white sand", that was nice.|
Peace and love,

you use your words perfectly to make a picture and a feeling to go along with it
your ending line is poetic and conculsive and brings round the title
i like this a lot... its great

Stay fresh and keep writing!
